This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Resilience: No matter how meticulously you plan a trip, things will never go exactly as anticipated. Our campers face all kinds of unknowns during this program, like weather and social dynamics. These challenges create safe opportunities for campers to problem-solve and manage their personal well-being.
  • Curiosity: There is always something new to learn on trip, for beginners and experienced campers alike! Whether it's a new skill, a funky-looking plant, or simply time to explore the shoreline, our camp provides endless chances to ask questions and get curious about ourselves and the world around us.

A trip by canoe or snowshoe is a perfect opportunity for kids to learn about themselves and others, while connecting with nature. Let us help your wild child upgrade their skills of self-reliance and determination, and achieve goals that will serve as personal touchstones in the face of life’s obstacles. 

This six-day ADVENTURE CAMP is a unique opportunity for youth ages 11-16 to embark on a journey this summer and forge life-long friendships in the context of an unforgettable backcountry canoe trip. Our guides are ORCKA Instructors, and offer Basic Canoe flatwater paddling certifications Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 (depending on demonstrated skill level).  These certifications are designed to turn beginners into effective paddlers while gaining valuable WILDERNESS LIVING skills and canoe tripping experience.

A canoe camping trip is a perfect opportunity for kids to CONNECT WITH NATURE while learning about themselves and others. They upgrade their skills of self-reliance, TEAMWORK, and determination, and achieve goals that will serve as personal touchstones in the face of life’s obstacles. The natural and cultural heritage of the landscape and waterways of the rugged-yet-accessible Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park offers a perfect occasion for kids to connect with nature through water, fire, WILD EDIBLE FORAGING, spotting a far-off galaxy, or gliding silently alongside the wildlife that call the park their home.

Campers will begin their experience here at TLCA's Wilderness Property in Apsley, ON, where they learn the fundamentals of trip planning, packing, and safety.  On Day 2, campers and their guides and gear are bussed to their access point of the Kawartha Highlands where they begin their backcountry journey.  Days 2, 3, 4 and 5 are spent paddling and portaging in the park.  On Day 5, campers say goodbye to the Kawartha Highlands and return to TLCA's Wilderness Property for one last night together to reminisce and reflect on the adventure they just had.  Day 6 is spent learning how to unpack from a trip and take care of their gear before campers are picked up in the afternoon.
