TRIPPING PROGRAM

The Wilderness Canoe Trip involves a 4-night, 5-day adventure in Algonquin Park, Ontario. Trippers should prepare themselves for a challenging and rewarding experience in the Canadian outdoors!

Campers spend the first days on site at Camp Ekon preparing for the canoe trip, which includes safety and skill instruction pertaining to how to paddle, stern, and portage a canoe. Trippers share every aspect of the trip: packing, paddling, portaging, cooking, and setting/striking camp. The trip is unforgettable, and develops independence, confidence, and provides a sense of accomplishment for those who do it.

Two first-aid certified and qualified trip leaders accompany every wilderness trip.

LEADERS - IN - TRAINING 1

LIT1 is a three-week camp, combining regular camper programming with an introduction to leadership.

The LIT1 camp follows the same schedule as our other camps, however, there is a mixture of traditional camp programming, ropes initiative sessions, leadership seminars, and a 5-day canoe trip.

All LITs will participate in a 5-day Wilderness Canoe trip in Killarney Provincial Park or Algonquin Provincial Park. Each leadership group will leave the luxuries of camp behind and partake on a canoe trip deep into the wilderness, where sightings of moose and rare birds are not uncommon! While on these trips, teams will be working together to set up and take down camp each day, propel their canoes through Various lake, and transport canoes and supplies over portage routes. These trips provide a valuable team-oriented experience, where strong lifelong friendships are formed and leadership skills are cultivated. LITs will pack their food and supplies themselves and will be responsible for planning their days while out in the wilderness.

Two qualified trip leaders accompany every wilderness trip.
