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.
