Jamboree on the Rouge 2019


The Jamboree on the Rivière Rouge is a celebration of white water that has been happening or over 23 years. Whitewater enthusiasts from all over Quebec gather for this festival and (re)discover the joys and gems of the Rouge river. Over the course of the week-end, paddlers participate in activities on water and on land. In addition to being a celebration of whitewater kayaking, this festival also has an environmental mission: an important portion of the profits will be set aside in a special fund for river accessibility and preservation. This fund, managed by the CCKEVM, is used to help projects aimed at improving river access and/or protection in the greater Montreal area. 

To follow the progress of the Jamboree, ask questions or share you ideas with us, follow our event page on Facebook! (JAMBOREE DE LA RIVIERE ROUGE)

Like every year, we are looking for volunteers who can help out during the festival. If you can donate a couple of hours to help us out it means everyone will have a chance to head down the river over the course of the weekend!

Here are the tasks for which we could use your help: 

  • Registration booth
  • Parking
  • Meal service and preparation
  • Bar
  • Boatercross
  • clinics

 If you're interested in helping out, please let us know by adding your name and interest(s) here: I WOULD LIKE GET INVOLVED.

Thanks in advance.
