CAMP NORTHWAY

Canoe DockA wilderness camp for girls. Founded in 1906. Located inside Algonquin Park, Ontario Canada.

PROGRAM OFFERINGS

Northway offers a traditional program based on our wilderness setting, of swimming, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts and dramatics. Canoe trips are the most special and loved of all activities. Northway has developed an unmatched style, spirit and skill in canoe tripping.

Canvassing a CanoeCampers practice their canoeing skills in Northway's cedar-strip canoes through several stages of proficiency. Our fleet of 5 Optimist Prams and 2 Lasers provide a great choice of sailboats for campers to meet the challenge of Cache Lake's inlets and cross-winds. The pure, clear water of Cache Lake is a lovely place for girls to learn to improve their swimming style. Northway follows the Red Cross swimming program.

Our Craft House is open all day, so between canoeing, swimming and sailing lessons, campers can drop in when the creative spirit moves them. Girls may work independently with their choice of the Craft house supplies, or with the help of the Craft Counsellors. Our dramatics Counsellors have been producing two full musicals each summer.

PHILOSOPHY

Northway was founded with the idea that girls should learn how to live simply in the outdoors and that the absence of appliances and luxuries would give campers a wilderness experience which they might draw upon throughout their lives. We try to maintain the idea that in-camp life should be almost as simple as life on a canoe trip. In camp the spirit is much the same as it is out in the wilderness - - one of willingness to help others, to befriend every other camper and to appreciate the beauty of nature.

LOCATION

Northway, Canada's oldest summer camp for girls, is located on a beautiful peninsula on Cache Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park. Algonquin provides 3000 square miles of protected wilderness forest.
