Summer ProgramS

Summer trips with Camp Outlook begin in early July and continue until late August. Surrounded by the spectacular beauty of Algonquin Park you will embark upon an incomparable camping adventure. Breathtaking sunsets, fantastic wildlife, paddling over pristine lakes and rivers and cooking hot dinners over a campfire are but a few of the experiences you will encounter on a summer canoe trip with Camp Outlook. But what makes all of these experiences even better are the incredible people you will share this adventure with.


A typical summer trip consists of a 9 day canoe trip in Algonquin Park with a maximum of 6 campers and 3 trip leaders. However, we offer many different types of canoe trips, ranging in length from 6 days to 14 days, and provide extra opportunities for returning campers to take on a leadership role on a trip of their own, learning skills from firemaking and canoeing to navigating group situations and leadership.


Historically, our shortest trip was a 9 day excursion, but we understood how daunting that could be. Now, we offer 6 day trips, so if you're a new and nervous camper, have no fear. The 6 day is an excellent intro to the world of canoe tripping!


Our standard trip length is a 9 day trip in Algonquin Park. While the length of the trip at 9 days may seem daunting to a camper at first, being in the park together as a group allows for a challenging, yet wonderfully rewarding and enjoyable time. We often take both returning campers and first time campers on our 9 day trips, and work hard to create a positive and challenging experience for everyone, no matter where they're at.

14 DAY

Our longest trip is a 14 day trip. These trips run towards the end of the summer, and require at least one previous trip with us and a recommendation from the camper's previous trip leaders. The 14-day is an amazing and challenging experience for campers and trip leaders alike, and really brings out the best of what the beautiful Ontario wilderness has to offer.


Finally, we offer leadership trips for our most experienced returning campers. These trips are typically completed by campers who have already gone on a trip with us before and would like to take on a different role.
