Wendigo is a small canoe-tripping outpost for boys (aged 12 – 16) operated by Camp Northway, located inside Algonquin Park.
Camp Wendigo offers supervised canoe trips throughout Algonquin Park’s 3000 square miles (7,770 square kilometres) of protected wilderness. The boys are involved in every facet of a canoe-trip. They learn how to pack out a trip, both food and equipment. They learn the value of efficiency and ingenuity in setting up camp and in outdoor cooking.
Wendigo’s rigorous programme helps boys to develop self-reliance and outdoor skills. A typical day when on trip consists of paddling and portaging through Algonquin. Each canoe trip has a specific route to follow, so each day the group works together to navigate to the next lake that is booked on the permit.
