The Widji Progression

The Widji program has been carefully crafted to offer progressive challenge and growth for teens, ages 12–18. As campers return to Widji year after year, trips increase in difficulty, and campers build upon their wilderness and leadership skills.

All of Widjiwagan’s adventures, from the Introductory BWCAW canoe trips to the Mountaineer or Voyageur expeditions, incorporate our mission to provide a fun, quality wilderness experience that fosters respect for self, community and the environment. The advanced tripping program gives experienced, qualified campers the added challenge of traveling in more remote areas for a longer duration.

Campers who are currently in grades 10–12 are eligible for advanced trips. They are invited to participate by demonstrating an enthusiasm for wilderness travel, initiative and an ability to work well with others. Campers refine their skills in the areas of wilderness travel, group dynamics and leadership.
