International Kayaking Adventure


As Kayakers, campers spend twelve days exploring beautiful Lake Superior Provincial Park on the eastern shore of Lake Superior by kayak. The first week of camp will include practice paddling on Lake Arbutus and instruction on packing and loading the boats. The adventure begins in Wawa, Ontario where the group will meet their kayak guides. These guides work through local outfitter Naturally Superior Adventures, the same company camp has worked with for over 15 years. Before venturing out onto Lake Superior, the kayak guides train campers on water safety and paddling techniques in the warmer waters of the Michipicoten River. The next day, the group will set off in their boats at Agawa Bay near the southern end of Lake Superior Provincial Park. The group will paddle north though remote sections of the park, exploring waterfalls, islands, and beautiful rocky shorelines along the way, before they finish the trip at Naturally Superior Adventures’ paddling center in Michipicoten Bay. While in camp, the girls will get to participate in all of the fun on-site challenges and activities offered.

Our certified sea kayak guides teach campers advanced safety skills before they start their twelve day trip, and the guides carry the specialized equipment and technology necessary for safe nautical travel.




The trip begins and ends at the Naturally Superior Adventures’ home base near Wawa, Ontario. The group paddles along the shoreline of Lake Superior Park from south to north, passing through beautiful northern hardwood forests and crisp, clear waters. For more information about the location of the trip, check out the Lake Superior Provincial Park website.
