Canoe Trips

For Campers Entering Grades 7–12

We offer canoe trips for a variety of skill levels. Our trips progress in difficulty, giving campers new challenges year after year. Start with trips in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, then move on to Canada’s Quetico Provincial Park.

Campers can expect to:

  • Live and travel in a small community of 4-6 other campers
  • Travel an average of 6–12 miles a day
  • Develop wilderness skills like paddling, portaging, navigation, and campcraft
  • Learn about low-impact wilderness travel
  • Build connections and friendships with other campers
  • Challenge themselves under the supervision of our highly trained guides

Financial assistance is available.

Intro to Canoeing: Boundary Waters

This is a great opportunity for younger campers to experience the Menogyn Magic for the first time. Campers will prepare for their trip in camp and then spend 2 nights and 3 days on trail exploring the beautiful Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Everyone will have fun learning how to paddle, portage, and set up camp.

Longer Boundary Waters Adventures

An incredible adventure for all teens! Regardless of skill level or previous canoeing experience, Menogyn guides work with campers to develop their wilderness skills as they enjoy an 8- or 9-night, 10-day wilderness canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. There is also more time to create lasting friendships and have fun!

Quetico Provincial Park Canoe

Campers deepen their expedition canoeing skills as they paddle and portage through the beautiful lakes and rivers of Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park. The Quetico is more remote and challenging than the BWCAW – a perfect opportunity for experienced campers. Please note: the Canadian border must be open for groups to enter the Quetico. If the Canadian border remains closed, this trip will operate within the Boundary Waters.

Quetico campers must bring a valid passport or passport card. Please note: the Canadian border must be open for groups to enter the Quetico. If the Canadian border remains closed, this trip will operate within the Boundary Waters.

We are also offering a fishing emphasis Quetico trip. Campers must bring their own fishing gear (lures, pole, line, etc.)
