Backcountry Canoe Trips with Heart & Meaning
Canoe camping is just the beginning… at Northwaters and Langskib (NWL) we offer backcountry adventures designed to engage and empower young people at a given stage in adolescent development. Within the context of a fun and challenging canoe trip, we use proven techniques in community building, group process, experiential learning and storytelling to create a pathway through adolescence. This approach makes us unique among outdoor adventure camps.
