We offer something different. At Headwaters, we’re interested in the kinds of human experiences that are needed today, for tomorrow. Our programs utilize traditional wilderness travel by canoe – disconnected from digital technologies – to discover our world and our own unique place in it. We value reflection over speed, finding meaning and purpose in the quiet moments just as much as the long portage. What sets us apart is our intentionality and our care. More than guides or camp counsellors, all of our staff are devoted, professional educators. More than canoe trips, our programs are informed by research and designed to nurture an authentic connection to nature and to community. Founded in North Toronto, we facilitate canoe trips for teenagers and for families across Ontario’s most magical wild places. Please feel welcome to contact us, endless possibilities are out there, and our doors are always open. We hope to see you soon!
