Camp Awakening took me on my first trip to Algonquin Park which nearly 20 years later is still one of the most amazing experiences in my life. Those 5 days in the backcountry of Algonquin were incredible. - Malcolm, alumni camper
Wilderness canoe tripping is a special part of the Camp Awakening summer camp program. Every camper, age 9-18, spends between 2 to 6 days of their session on canoe trip.
Depending on the age and experience of the cabin group, the canoe trip could be a simple overnight on Gull or Eagle Lake (home to our host camps) or an expedition to one of Ontario’s beautiful Provincial Parks (such as Algonquin or Frontenac).
Campers learn how to paddle a canoe, pitch a tent, and cook over a campfire.
