    In Ontario, many wilderness camps are found in and around what some people consider the last wilderness, Algonquin Park, along with other areas nearby including Bracebridge, the Kawarthas and the Ottawa Valley and as far north as Temagami.

    From one camp to the next, "wilderness trips" may vary widely, anywhere from an afternoon foray into the highlands to weeklong trips into the wild to summer-long treks into the hinterland as far north as Hudson Bay. Trips can take you to see rare wildlife, past isolated settlements and deep into no-man's land.

    These kinds of wilderness camps offer unprecedented personal growth, encouraging personal development, deepening of leadership skills, teamwork and reliance on others, along with a wealth of other intangible qualities unachievable by any other means. On top of that, kids will acquire deep knowledge and understanding of nature, ecology and geography.

    Investigate each of the camps listed here to learn more about its wilderness adventure.
