What is Pine’s Wayfinder Program?
Pine’s Red Wolf Wayfinder Program is a 3-week backcountry adventure in August for teens ages 15 & 16 that combines camping, canoeing and leadership training. Wayfinders split their time between Red Wolf Overnight Camp and a multi-day canoe trip in Temagami, to develop skills in canoeing, navigation and map reading, portaging, water safety and rescue, campsite setup and care, and general outdoor skills. They also have a chance to build other wilderness skills (eg. wildlife tracking, foraging for food, shelter building), and mentor younger campers.
*BURSARIES AVAILABLE* If you or someone you know would love to join us for a transformative 3-weeks in Ontario’s wilderness this summer, but cost is creating a barrier, Pine’s Bursary Program can help!
- Refer friends & family – have conversations, post on social media, send an email to your community, whatever feels right to you! You don’t need to be currently enrolled in any Pine programs.
- Registering families will be asked on their application form for the name of the person who referred them. If they forget, you can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
- We’ll reach out to you to let you know that a hat and knife will be coming your way!
*The referred family must successfully register in the Wayfinder program (including payment of the deposit; bursaries available). They must be new to Wayfinders, but not necessarily new to Pine.
