Clothing & Equipment
There is no camp uniform; plain rugged outdoor clothes in good condition are suitable for both base camp and canoe trips. Our camp store offers wool jackets, tumplines, duffel bags, ground sheets, and some sundry items. Store pricing covers only the camp’s costs of these items. It is important to bear in mind while outfitting your camper that equipment and clothing will see hard use. Likewise, your camper will be exposed to the elements while on trip. Cool, wet weather should be anticipated as well as hot and sunny. Dressing in layers is essential to remain warm and dry as well as cool.
Outfitting a camper with the proper clothes helps to set him or her up for success. By starting to gather gear in advance, one can take advantage of sales, discounts, second-hand options etc. Please refer to the full gear list in your CampMinder parent portal for specific suggestions, tips and tricks for how to best outfit your camper! Popular brands and outlets for purchasing trip clothing (i.e. long underwear, insulating layers, rain gear, and warm jacket) among other equipment needs include:
Travel & Transportation
Keewaydin is located on Lake Temagami in Ontario, Canada, 300 miles north of Toronto. Supervised travel is provided by bus from the Toronto airport to the Lake, and then by boat to Keewaydin’s Devil’s Island base camp. The trip is easily made in a day from anywhere in the mainland United States.
Every year we have young campers who fly to Canada alone under an Unaccompanied Minor status. Most airlines provide this service to assist young children in traveling from their point of departure to their final destination.
For parents planning a visit please check GOOGLE MAPS for best routes to Lake Temagami from North Bay, Ontario.
