Explore Isle Royale National Park!
Few places in North America remain unspoiled and undamaged from centuries past as Isle Royale National Park (just east of Thunder Bay, Canada). No vehicles are allowed here and the only “roads” are trails hikers tread. The first week at camp will prepare campers for the 14-day excursion, with practice hikes and learning all about this beautiful part of the world.
After a four and a half hour voyage on the Isle Royale Queen III ferry out of Copper Harbor, the backpacking adventure begins- truly a unique experience! Campers will have the chance to see moose, swim in Lake Superior, and become Junior Rangers at the Ranger Station in Windigo.
