North Star Camp for Boys

Quetico Provincial Park

Please update your Flash Player to view content.

Known to our campers as "The Canadian", this trip serves as the grand finale of our tripping program. This is a trip that our campers look towards for many years and one that our alumni often point to as a real highlight of their teen years. For nine days, the campers will paddle the waters of Quetico Provincial Park, one of Ontario's renowned canoeing and fishing areas. Paddlers come from all around to experience the park; however permits limit the number of people who are allowed in. This truly remote trip provides our campers a challenging trip that sees them canoe pristine lakes and portage their gear and canoes. The Canadian pushes campers to challenge themselves physically and mentally and ultimately, campers return from this trip with a new sense of self confidence and achievement.

This trip best exemplifies the importance of out tripping program as a team building and group bonding experience. As with all other trips, campers go on this trip with their bunk mates and counselors. It is a certainty that groups will emerge from this trip having worked together and developed a deeper and more meaningful bond. Experiences like this lead to friendships that last a lifetime and when the group returns to camp, they build off of those bonds as they spend the rest of the summer together. This is even more magnified when you have cabin groups that are together year after year and go on several trips together.

We're proud of our trip program and are confident in the outcomes that it creates.
