Program Overview

We offer canoe trips for all ages, skill levels, and experience. We place an emphasis on appropriate challenges and have three different tripping options available for summer campers: Temagami Trippers, Near North Trippers, and Headwaters and Bay Trippers. The diverse options allow new campers to find their perfect match and for our returning campers to gradually increase the challenge and duration of their trips.

All of our trips are tailored to match each camper’s age and experience. We accommodate all ages and skill levels with our Temagami Trippers program. The trips start and finish right from our base camp canoe dock in the heart of Temagami. Campers, who are looking for a more challenging option, can choose to venture further afield as Near North Trippers or Headwaters and Bay Trippers.

Prior to departing base camp, each group spends a few days learning the skills necessary for a successful wilderness canoe trip. Guides teach canoe tripping skills and facilitate team building initiatives, group and individual goal setting, and camp-wide games.



The skills, trust, communication, and friendships established in camp allow participants to grow together and successfully tackle challenges on trail. Each accomplishment instills confidence and the journey becomes a valuable life experience.

Groups return to a hero’s welcome at camp: embraces from friends, admiration from peers, and congratulations from all greet them. The entire camp community celebrates with camp-wide games and the tales of trip are shared during an evening of trip talks and slideshows.

We also offer summer adult and family trips, and programs for school groups in June and September. Both options are extremely flexible and we can tailor a program to meet your needs. Adults and families often kick back and relax on our full-service island, take overnight canoe trips, or embark on a single longer canoe trip. School programs include Duke of Edinburgh adventurous journeys and custom programs for larger class grades and groups.
