Wilderness Canoe Trip Leader

Live, Work, and Play with Children in Algonquin Park This Summer!


Camp Arowhon is a traditional co-ed, overnight summer camp in the heart of Algonquin Park, Ontario. Our mission is to nurture and challenge children, both physically and emotionally. Our community of 350 campers is big enough to be diverse but still feels like a family. Our team of 250 staff means that the campers get a ton of individual attention, and you have a whole bunch of like-minded people to hang out with. 


At Arowhon, you will receive professional training and expert support and supervision. You will grow yourself while you help children grow. You will leave feeling proud because you made campers feel proud of themselves. You will work hard and play hard, all in a beautiful wilderness setting. 


Our canoe trips are focused on teaching technical skills AND interpersonal skills, and have a strong focus on developing our campers leadership ability. Our program organizes over 100 canoe trips each summer, ranging in duration from 2 to +21 days, on both flat water and moving water.


We are currently seeking candidates for Long Trip Canoe Trippers, White Water Canoe Trippers, Leader-In-Training Canoe Trippers, Flat Water Canoe Trippers and Junior Canoe Trippers.
