For adventurous campers entering grades 10 – 12
Explore the Quetico Provincial Park. Paddle and portage across pristine lakes and ancient forests. Experience the freedom of wilderness travel. Learn new skills and make new friends. Face new challenges and be part of a team. Do things you never thought you could. This two-week camp session is a great fit for campers looking to experience both the fun and energy of Wolf Ridge summer camp and the adventure of canoe camping across Canada’s Quetico Provincial Park.
Spend the first week exploring the natural history of the boreal forests near Wolf Ridge and high adventure activities like outdoor rock climbing, then paddle canoes north into the ancient waters of Quetico Provincial Park. This fun and challenging 8-day trip takes us deep into the heart of Canada’s premiere canoe wilderness. The group will spend the first day traveling through the Boundary Waters to the Canadian border, then will cross into the Quetico and spend the rest of the time-traveling across the lakes and forests of the park. A valid US passport book or card is required for this trip.
Designed to introduce campers to the world of paddling a canoe and water navigation, campers will explore an average of 5-8 miles a day in the Quetico and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Campers learn how and what to pack, how to choose and set up camp, and cook delicious meals outdoors. No prior wilderness trip experience is required, but canoe travel requires extra physical and mental grit, so come prepared to work and play hard! What to expect on a canoe trip.
It’s easy to make new lifelong friends when you share epic adventures. Many campers return for future trips with us!
