The teen years are a time of awakening; when exploration is a natural urge, and the driving impulse is to discover, Who am I? What am I capable of? What lies beyond?
Red Canoe Foundation believes that exceptional wilderness expeditions can provide youth the opportunity to explore these questions, and to benefit from the rewards of hard work, peer fellowship, and incredible beauty, that come from leaving the distractions of technology behind and empowering a young person’s inner resources.
Founded as a U.S. 501(c)(3) organization by people devoted to Camp Wabun based on Lake Temagami, Ontario, the mission of Red Canoe Foundation is to provide young people greater access to the wilderness through scholarships.
In the inherent virtue and value that is derived from time spent in a wilderness context
In the goal of cultivating future generations’ respect and sense of stewardship for the world we share
In the profound self-discovery and individual growth that transpires through travel in the natural world
