Claudia Kerckhoff-Van Wijk

Our guest is Claudia Kerckhoff-Van Wijk , known as the White Water Woman. This is how she grew up. Paddling amongst world champions, she quickly rose to the top in Canada and in the world; attaining the Canadian title 10 times, as well as the bronze medal at the World Championships. But the highlight in her life, is being able to transition her athletic career into her businesses, which bring thousands of people into the river community through Madawaska Kanu Centre and OWL Rafting on the Ottawa River. Together with her husband, Dirk, their 3-generation family businesses are celebrating 50 years this season. Claudia feels fortunate to be in outdoor tourism, as every day she hears, ‘thank you

Algonquin Park is the headwaters to many rivers as it is the highest point of land in Ontario. For 50 years now, this river and this forest have been our guest's home . The Algonquin and Anishinabek people have lived here for millennia. They now hold the responsibility to ensure it will continue to thrive for future generations. This watershed is their home, their work, their community and their playground. They teach how to work with the river, you cannot fight the currents, you need to work with it, learn how to place your boat to harness the energy for the water to do the work for you – it’s a gravity sport; thus equal for men & women, using the water - being one with the RIVER. The river is such a metaphor for life, we can learn to enter into the rapids and let the rapids and gravity move us along doing the work, or we just jump in and start paddling without regard for the flow of the current or the rapid’s force until slowly the energy we are expending exhausts us. It’s about letting the flow move you along. This is your ZEN or HAPPY moment. You find your zone, when paddling a river as there’s no space for other thoughts to enter your mind. The river is exhilarating, revitalizing and can provide a healthy distraction from our busy lives. Bringing more people into the RIVER World, our guest hopes to inspire, deepen and build people’s care and love for our environment. Let’s delve into it live, Thursday September 2nd at 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
