Canoe tripping at Camp Temagami is a fun and exciting wilderness adventure that offers real reward; it is the ideal pursuit to empower adolescent development.
Our program is designed to promote self-reliance, provide a link to the past, a connection to the landscape we travel through, and encourage valuable personal growth.
We engage campers in active learning that does not need to be staged or manufactured and offer a rare opportunity to unplug from a world full of technology and “virtual” experiences.
Each participant receives the necessary instruction and guidance to foster self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, friendships, and community through personal accomplishment.
Boys and Girls Programs
Our Tripping Programs
We accommodate a wide range of age and experience with our most popular program. Younger campers receive added support from our dedicated staff in camp and on trip. Campers learn basic canoe tripping skills, cook amazing food over an open fire, make lasting friendships, and enjoy stunning Canadian wilderness.
Our Near North Trippers travel to one of the nearby rivers in Ontario or Quebec for an introduction to moving water. Our experienced Guides teach safe river travel and act as strong role models. Campers learn intermediate canoe tripping skills, practice teamwork, gain self-confidence, and display increased initiative.
Our Headwaters and Bay Trippers venture further afield. Our highly skilled Guides involve campers in every aspect of trip planning, preparation, and execution. Campers learn the necessary skills for a lifetime of wilderness travel and earn a powerful sense of accomplishment from skill mastery and self-reliance.
Every August we open our base camp to friends and families. It is an opportunity to share common experiences and strengthen relationships. Participants can embark on a canoe trip or simply relax on our private 20-acre island. The program is the perfect way to experience the contagious camp energy.
We offer programs for schools and large groups in June and September. Programs include Duke of Edinburgh adventurous journeys and custom programs for larger class grades and groups. All groups have exclusive use of our island base camp and we supply all of the necessary tripping gear. Please contact us to learn more.
