From crafts and climbing to sailing and songwriting, Ogichi offers a diversity of instructional classes. With four activity periods each day, campers decide how to spend their time: learning new skills, honing their techniques in a favorite class, and even teaching other girls.

WILDERNESS ADVENTURE

Through Ogichi’s graduated wilderness trips program, timid little girls become wide-eyed adventurers seeking new rivers to paddle and new ranges to traverse.

Trips are tailored to age and experience, starting with a gentle three-day introduction to canoe camping in Voyageurs National Park. Older campers progress from eight-day flatwater trips through the Quetico to 11- and 16-day whitewater adventures in Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and eventually to extended expeditions in far northern Canada.
