Our Camp

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.

Our Tripping Programs

Temagami Trippers

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.

Near North Trippers

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.

Headwaters & Bay Trippers

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.


Hands on leadership training is part of what makes canoe tripping a unique and powerful adventure education experience. Participants take part in a remote canoe trip and receive formal training, certifications, and an internship position with increased responsibility to foster initiative.

Family Camp

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.

Adult Camp

Adult camp is a great opportunity to re-live cherished childhood memories or experience what you may have missed. Participants can embark on a canoe trip or simply relax on our private 20-acre island. It is the perfect way to experience the contagious camp energy.
