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:

  • Travel an average of 7–12 miles a day
  • Develop team building, paddling and portaging skills
  • Cook over a fire or camp stove
  • Learn about strengths and limits
  • Relax, make friends and share stories at night

Financial assistance is available.

Quetico campers must bring a valid passport or passport card.
