At last, summer has finally arrived! By now, you’re probably in full-swing summer mode — spending as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying the longer days and warmer weather. Do you consider yourself someone who likes to keep healthy with adventurous sport and activities? Well, there’s no better time of year to live an active lifestyle while engaging in outdoor adventure than the summer.

Are there certain activities that you’d love to try but don’t have the cash for the necessary tools and equipment? You’re not alone — sporting gear can be costly. And if you’re saving up because of the economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, you probably aren’t spending a lot of money. 

However, did you know that there are online contests in Canada that specifically cater to adventure seekers, such as yourself? Instead of spending your savings, check out online giveaways to see what’s new every day. You’d be surprised at what you could win, and how often your favourite products offer online contests and giveaways.

If you’re a health and fitness fanatic living an active lifestyle but are hoping to put away some of your money for a rainy day (or the day when we can all safely get back to work), check out these recent health and sporting goods contests.

Paddling.Com Gear Giveaway 

This paddling website is your source for all things canoeing and kayaking. It offers gear reviews, community events, guides and maps on where to find the best paddling spots in Canada and all over the globe, and much more. 

They also offer exciting contests for canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts! Recently, Paddling.Com allowed readers to win a brand new Prospector 15 SP3 Nova Craft Canoe. This canoe style is a little smaller and more responsive than the larger Prospector models, and it’s an ideal choice for people who want a tripping boat but don’t need the additional volume. 

This prize was worth around $1000! Continue to check the site because they consistently provide giveaways offering products, gift cards, and even cash.

The Kayak Angler Magazine Sweepstakes: Outdoor Gear Prize Pack

If you’re a fan of active lifestyle paddling, you might already be familiar with Kayak Angler Magazine. They’re an excellent resource for fishing and boating, and they regularly offer incredible prize packs and giveaways. 

Last month, for example, the magazine gave away one prize to a lucky reader, which included essential outdoor gear worth almost $1300. It included:

  • 1 Torrens Thermal jacket
  • 1 Callan jacket
  • 1 pair of Callan Bib pants
  • 1 MIT 70 PFD
  • 1 Highwater 60L gear hauler

With these fantastic items, the lucky winner will never show up on a fishing trip unprepared ever again. To win required little effort: contestants completed an online entry form on the magazine’s website and were encouraged to subscribe to the Kayak Angler YouTube channel.

Kayak Angler offers contests on the regular, and the prizes are always as practical as they are impressive. Check back soon to see when the next one will run.

You don’t need a lot of money to enjoy the outdoors and lead an active lifestyle. All you need is a computer, the internet, and an open mind to discover the endless possibilities with some of the best online contests Canada has to offer.
