Keewaydin Temagami (June 2011)

Keewaydin Temagami remains true to the vision of our founder, A.S. Greg Clarke “The Commodore,” who wanted to start a camp that focused on time out of base camp, on canoe trips. Today we look much the same as we did in 1893. Paddling in wood canvas canoes, using tump lines to portage canoes, equipment, and wannigans (the wooden boxes which we carry food and equipment,) sections travel the surrounding wilderness waterways often portaging from lake to lake or up and down rivers, making camp at new spot each night, sleeping in tents with one or two other campers.
