John Island Camp
Everyone should have the opportunity
to make endless summer camp memories.
Trekkers Ages 12 to 15
The Trekkers program is for campers who long to be on trip. It consists of a 10 day hike along the beautiful lake superior coastal trail. It begins at Gargantua Harbour and ends at the Agawa River. This route offers over 50km of scenic mountains, rivers, and coast. During this time, campers will build valuable skills in navigation, no-trace backpacking, and trip planing; as well as an appreciation for one of the most amazing natural spaces in Canada.
This trip travels through the true rugged beauty that is northern Ontario and it is great preparation for the Greenway and Norquay leadership programs!
Getting Ready for Trip
John Island is committed to providing a safe and comfortable backcountry experience on all of our trips. All group camping gear is provided – tents, packs, camp kitchen, first aid supplies, and all other wilderness expedition essentials! Campers only need to provide their personal equipment: clothes, sleeping gear, toiletries, and a waterproof dry bag to keep everything cozy. A more detailed packing list will be available closer to session dates.
