SUPtember with Court Outdoors

Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Yoga Retreat


Join Courtney, from Court Outdoors, for a weekend of paddling and adventure on this one-of-a-kind retreat experience.

Are you seeking fun, adventure & skill-building?


Fall yoga & meditation retreat

Imagine paddling into the mist across the lake during an Algonquin morning sunrise or testing your balance during SUP yoga.

The SUPtember retreat is the perfect opportunity for you to spend time in nature learning to paddleboard, improve your skills on sunrise SUP adventures, practice yoga on the dock, enjoy your morning coffee/tea lakeside, listen to the call of a loon, try out SUP yoga, share connections around the campfire, explore hiking trails, and more.

Meals & Dietary Needs

Edge guests are well nourished and experience mealtime itself as a program element, with storytelling to introduce the seasonal flavours of the region and the relationships with the folk who grew and raised the ingredients close to home. Cooking at the Edge focuses on balancing globally far-flung tastes with provincially produced foods. Meals are served buffet style and are guests often enjoy lakeside dining outdoors when the weather allows it.

Over the years we have met many diverse dietary needs. Guests are invited to identify their dietary needs & preferences as a part of the registration process, and those with restrictions love the options we provide.

Itinerary & Program Timings

We offer unique, tailored experiences that flow as our facilitators respond to the interests of our guests, seasonal conditions, and special opportunities that may arise.

Each retreat at the Edge features healthy doses of dreamtime, adventure, community, creativity, time spent in nature, and a dash of surprise. Guests always have the choice to take solo or rest time in lieu of planned experiences.

While a detailed itinerary is not available, you can count on and prepare for the activities used to describe the flavour of this retreat. Meals are generally served at 8:30, 12:30, and 6pm. When appropriate, optional early-morning or late-night experiences may be offered.

Arrival Time & Directions

Arrival time is between 2 – 3 pm with programming beginning at 3:30.  We encourage our guests to arrive on time and stay to experience the full retreat, which generally ends after brunch on the final day. Please let us know if you expect to arrive after 3.

You can find us easily on Google or Apple maps, or view detailed directions here.

What to Bring

We’ll be spending time both indoors and out in nature, and we invite you to dress appropriately for the season to stay comfortable, warm, and dry. There’s no dress code and most guests wear their “retreat-casual”.

We encourage guests to bring a surprise to share with others – this might take the form of a game or activity, an instrument/song/poem, or a tasty treat.

testimonials

This was an amazing experience. People were at all different skill levels and everyone was included. Leaders were so nice, friendly, knowledgeable and respectful. Food was incredible. And as you can see the surroundings are beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone.”

Danielle Howe-Borges – SUPtember 2023

I decided to attend this retreat this year because it was my 50th birthday. I had high expectations but my weekend went way beyond my expectation. The lake is clear and clean. The property is just wow! The off grid concept is just what I needed, no phones, no data, no internet. Just being one with nature. The meals were culinary art for all of our senses. The owners and the staff were exceptional. I absolutely loved the fact that we did not feel forced or pressured in participating in anything, we got to decide what felt good for each one of us.”

Patricia Diotte – SUPtember 2023

“10/10 “Beautiful, relaxing weekend”. I loved everything about this weekend. The location, the facilitators, the hosts, the grounds, the other participants, and the food. Loved the options of yoga, SUP, enjoying nature, and lots of time to reflect and connect. The meals were absolutely phenomenal.”
