  • Interpersonal skills: Participants will create a strong sense of community with their peers as they travel through the wilderness, learning how to work together to accomplish daily tasks and make decisions.

Are you a strong leader looking to put your skills to the test?

Join us on our longest and most challenging expedition. While travelling down the Missinaibi River from Missinaibi Provincial Park to Moosonee, your instructors will help you build and refine your flatwater and whitewater paddling skills. You will also learn about your leadership skills and put them to use. As a team, you will progress through the Canadian Shield, downstream to the lowlands of James Bay, working together to navigate, portage, and build camp each night. Along the way, keep an eye out for the powerful Thunderhouse Falls and Hells Gate. 

Course work for your high school credit will be done through activities, group discussions and analysis, and daily journal reflections.


The Missinaibi River is 755 km long and has been home to Cree and Moose Cree peoples as traditional trapping and fishing grounds. The name itself means Pictured Waters in Cree, and pictographs are found along the river. After reaching the northern end of the river, you will return south by the Polar Bear Express train.

 Your skills will develop as you progress from navigating calm flat water in a canoe to more lively white water. Everything you need for the expedition will be brought with you. The skills developed on the journey include paddling strokes, map reading and navigation, camp skills, Leave No Trace, and teamwork and leadership. This route has several portages of varying lengths, where you will need to work together to carry your equipment around unnavigable rapids.
