The 2020 summer will see a new outreach from Pathfinder, establishing two scholarship camper
places for boys from the nearby Ottawa Valley Algonquin community. Source Lake is an important place to first peoples who know the watershed of the Madawaska as their ancestral
lands. Camp is also supporting the ‘Gathering of Our People’ at Whitefish Lake, a bark canoe to be created this summer by noted builder Chuck Commanda, and a new Algonquin history text in
partnership with Friends of Algonquin and our own cultural educator Christine McRae.

'...Pathfinder’s home island at Source Lake lies in the headwaters of the Madawaska River, traditional and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg,–  the original inhabitants and stewards of this land. Today, this land remains home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island...'

Looking back at Fall Crew 2019

2019 TRIPS

The 106th Pathfinder season rolls into the Second Half and C-Session amidst a flurry of First Half tripping action, awesome weather with perfect swimming, and activity highlights in-camp.

Check out the 2019 Canoe Trips

First Half boasted over 30 trips, featuring an 18-day Coulonge-Noire journey, 18-day Meanest Link, and 3 AA trips in northern Ontario & Quebec (wrapping up in mid-August).


As of the August holiday weekend in Algonquin, Second Half has seen a bunch of new trip postings including 19-day and 18-day Algonquin and French River routes, a 13-day cruise in Temagami, 10-day and two week Park trips for Otts, and trips of a week and 10-days for Chipps and Crees!
