Ceremony Options

One Day

We offer the option to have your cocktail hour, ceremony and dinner at Camp Pathfinder, while lodging and other meals are elsewhere. We partner with Arowhon Pines, an elegant resort located minutes away on Little Joe Lake. A number of other lodging options are close by for you and your guests. Shuttles are provided to Camp for the ceremony and festivities before heading back to lodgings for the night. 

Two Days, One Night

Guests arrive on the Island between 10 am and 1 pm for a served brunch or luncheon. Move into your cabins and tents, then enjoy a few hours of relaxing downtime, paddling and swimming before ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. Enjoy your dancing late into the night with food and celebration. The following morning, linger over a classic woods camp breakfast and enjoy more of the camp's activities before heading home.

Three Days, Two Nights


The best option if you're planning the perfect rustic destination wedding. Guests arrive at the island between 10 am and 1 pm for brunch or luncheon, move into their tents and cabin lodges, and spend the day with friends and family in true camp style. You can work with us to plan fun activities for your guests to enjoy on this happy arrival day. The sky's the limit.


Wedding day finds guests enjoying plenty of time to revel in camp all morning and early afternoon, before attending a picture-perfect ceremony, followed  by a served cocktail reception, elegant four-course dinner and lively reception. Guests and wedding party stay over a second night in their tent or lodge, and enjoy the dancing, partying and late-night  food into the wee hours.  The following morning, linger over a classic woods camp breakfast and enjoy more of the camp's activities before heading home.


Venue & Setting


Lovingly maintained in rustic simplicity since 1914, Pathfinder Island's 17-acres shelter us in a beautiful arrangement of traditional ranger cabins and canvas wall tents beneath mature pines and hardwoods. Source Lake waters surround us. A forest canopy grows overhead, and pine needled paths lie underfoot. 

Pathfinder is a five-hour drive door to dock from Buffalo, three and one-half hours from metro Toronto or Ottawa, and two hours from Peterborough, ON. The camp accommodates up to 180 guests in rustic comfort, with special wedding weekend access to  power and  hot water so you can have everyone looking their best for your big moment.
