Project Canoe announces new Partnership with Algonquin Basecamp

Project Canoe officially announces partnership with Algonquin Basecamp for new base of operations It is with great excitement that Project Canoe announces a new partnership with Algonquin Basecamp.

Algonquin Basecamp, located in Kearney, Ontario, will serve as Project Canoe’s new base of operations in Northern Ontario for the 2015 season and beyond.

As a result of planning changes in the Ontario government, Project Canoe recently ended its 15+ year association with the Briggs base camp in Temagami, Ontario. Following an exhaustive search, Algonquin Basecamp and Project Canoe have agreed to team up to serve youth who are facing barriers and help them achieve success in their lives. This new partnership gives Project Canoe’s youth access to the awe-inspiring lake network of Algonquin Park, and is in closer proximity to where most of the youth live.

Project Canoe ( uses the outdoors, including wilderness canoeing; to create a transformative environment in which young people develop life skills, social competencies, and resiliency, thereby fostering their own personal success. We partner with our youth, supporting them as they carry these skills and successes forward to manage the complex challenges of their lives.

Algonquin Basecamp ( provides complete or partial outfitting services and are known by their tagline as the “Your Adventure Starts Here Headquarters!” The camp is located directly en route to Tim Lake (access #2), Magnetawan Lake (access #3), and Rain Lake (access #4), and is only 15 minutes from Highway 60.
