Out Trips

Out Trips

If you’re interested in getting deeper into the wilderness and venturing off with a smaller group, sign up for one (or more!) of our out trips! We are so lucky to be located in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, as we are surrounded by mountains, lakes, and rivers everywhere we turn!

Out-trips are a part of the camp program in which any camper may participate, unless we have been advised of medical or other restrictions. Campers who may be interested in going on an extended trip can register ahead or upon arrival. Registration will be available online in the spring, to ensure that we have a team ready to lead out-trips.

Depending on the nature and destination of the trip, charges to cover the cost of transportation, and provincial or federal park fees will be billed after the season.


Wilvaken is very fortunate to have an island and wilderness property immediately across the lake. Campers love going to the island or the main land to camp overnight.

Weather permitting, an overnight is done with each cabin group in every two week session, so all campers should come equipped with a sleeping bag!

What a great experience to cook a meal over the campfire, and to look up at the night sky to watch the stars!
