SEDORE, Kim – has been guiding canoe trips since she was she was big enough and old enough to do so, beginning in 1996. Her paddling history happily reaches back to her infancy. Kim has recently worked as a Wilderness Field Instructor with Pine River Institute, a renowned and respected school for adolescents struggling with addictions and behavior. The first setting for students in treatment with PRI is two months in the Ontarian bush, all seasons. Kim’s insight stem from her adventures - at work and in leisure- as well as from her formal studies of philosophy and comparative religion. She has lived in city and forest in Ontario, Quebec, BC, and the Yukon. She is also a writer and a musician. Her songwriting for Kimberley and The Collect Callers is directly inspired by the power and sense of the natural world. The banjo playing in the old time claw-hammer style is born of the bush. Kim currently steers a guiding outfit with a 29 ft. long Langley voyageur canoe, the project is recognized as Same Boat Adventures. Since it was established in 2010, bringing people together and away has been the main ambition of Same Boat Adventures. Sharing talents, building spirits through connection, and re-grounding in an ever deepening relationship with the land and water is the hope and the joy of this commitment.
