We offer canoe trips for all skill levels. Small groups of like aged peers travel through stunning Canadian wilderness with exceptional leaders. We place an emphasis on self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, friendship, and community. A summer at Camp Temagami provides valuable life experience. Participants become confident, thoughtful, principled, kind, and adventurous.
Camp Temagami is, in so many ways, simply stunning. With more than a century of history, when campers arrive they step into an environment that has a long arc and a wealth of experience. The buildings show their age in all the right ways, and offer a view of the traditions that have supported the camp culture throughout its life. The staff and leadership all have a long association with the camp, as well as a deep appreciation for the ecology and geography of the region. The canoes are made by hand, with most of them built by Hugh Stewart who first arrived as a camper in 1959 and remains as part of the leadership team today. The canoes are canvas and cedar, just as they always where, and they and everything else about the camp feels like a natural expression of the environment and its heritage. The routes taken are, in many cases, those that were used by First Nations communities for perhaps hundreds of years. But, of course, the experience grows because of those things, but doesn’t exist because of them. Tripping is a chance for campers to challenge themselves, in small groups, to have an authentic experience of fellowship, teamwork, and their place in the world. There’s, frankly, a lot to love. For many campers, time spent with Camp Temagami is a transformative experience.

I fell in love with Temagami in 1991 as a 12-year-old camper. I was mesmerized by the natural beauty, the crystal clear water, and the rugged granite of the Canadian Shield. I was enthralled with being on “trip.” The distractions of modern life were stripped away. The true character of traveling companions shone through and real, lasting friendships were made.
The experience as a camper was powerful. It inspired me to earn Masters degrees in Economics and Outdoor Recreation, to teach youth in the classroom and field, and to take on the role of camp Director.
Our passion to share the experience drives us to offer programs for campers that will help them grow as individuals and become confident, thoughtful, principled, kind, and adventurous.
