For Campers Entering Grade 6
This 5 day experience will introduce campers to the basic canoe and camping skills for an overnight camping trip. This program will focus on the tradition and history of Widji, the BWCAW, and northern Minnesota fur trade and logging history.
Campers will spend their first 2 days getting ready for their overnight camping trip. On the 3rd morning of camp, the campers will paddle to a nearby campsite on Burntside Lake to get a sense of what ‘trail life’ is like and camp overnight with their fellow Pathfinders and two Widji Counselors. The group will return the next day and be involved with the banquet and closing activities. This trip is a great way to introduce an eager camper to Camp Widjiwagan.
