Campers 8-11 will have the opportunity to take Bay trips in the area around the camp where we offer canoe trips in the Massassauga Wildlands Provincial Park, which costs a small registration fee for camper and staff entering the Park. For campers 12-16, Camp Hurontario offers trips in eight different regions of Northern Ontario and in Northern Quebec.
