Kamaji’s wilderness trips include camping, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, horseback riding and climbing.

Speaking of which, all of Kamaji’s campers have an opportunity to canoe and kayak lakes and rivers in Northern Minnesota, Northern Wisconsin and even Canada. These trips vary in length from two to nine days and are led by highly qualified, skilled and experienced trip leaders. Nothing can be more fun than sleeping under the stars (or in tents if you prefer), cooking tin-foil dinners over a roaring campfire, creating the perfect s’more, singing songs, and telling stories with your cabinmates and counselors.

Before heading out on a wilderness trip, all campers must first complete some specific swimming and canoeing requirements. Too, all must participate in Kamaji’s Campcraft course where they learn how to cook campfire meals and pitch a tent and the importance of “leaving no trace behind”. From the trip shack you’ll learn orienteering (and geocaching) and, with your cabinmates, counselors and trip leader, plan the finer details of your adventures — from what you’ll eat to what you’ll pack to where you’ll travel.

Also, depending upon interest, skill ability and experience, campers have the opportunity to go on overnight kayaking, sailing, horseback riding and even climbing trips.
