Who knows how to make a blueberry muffin over the fire? These girls do after working together with their guide. That's definitely a good reason to be excited.

The Voyageur Canoe on Lake Superior.

The Voyageur Canoe on Lake Superior.
It takes strength and cooperation to use these canoes. Youth at Amnicon learn how strong they are and how much work it can be to coordinate their strengths with others.

Canoing is what we do.

Canoing is what we do.
There is plenty of time to get to to know your canoe partner while paddling down the river. It's a great way to really get to know someone.

The Voyaguer Canoe in the Apostle Islands

Ever Paddled a canoe with 15 partners? These kids have. Talk about community. If they didn't learn to paddle together, that 600 lbs. canoe wouldn't go anywhere.

Challenge yourself with whitewater.

Challenge yourself with whitewater.
Whitewater canoeing is a major challenge. These kids meet that challenge every week as they test their skills and strength at Camp Amnicon and most importantly have fun doing it.

A new community.

A new community.
Back safe from the river. It was a hard week, but now they're closer than ever. They know each other on a much deeper level. Most of all, they know that they are not alone.
