The abundant lakes of the Boundary Waters offer different challenges to kayakers. Boys can paddle to rapids and iconic waterfalls and large border lakes. Campers learn to kayak during free swim periods while in camp. We offer a kayak Apostle Islands Advanced Trip on Lake Superior for older campers who have mastered specific kayak rescue skills.
For older more experienced kayakers, the Apostle Islands expedition is available. The group of twenty islands at the northern tip of Wisconsin on Lake Superior are lined with sandy beaches and sandstone cliffs. On calm days, campers can even paddle around the many sea caves. The trip has been described by many as “surreal and Caribbean-like” despite the cooler water temperatures of Lake Superior.
