On this 5-day 4-night canoe trip, participants will explore the Downeast Lakes and camp at some of the most scenic, remote campsites in eastern Maine. Each day the group will paddle on lakes and streams in traditional Passamaquoddy territory, learn canoe skills, practice wilderness camping skills, and enjoy each other's company. Food will be cooked on an open fire. Participants will sleep in tents, have a chance to swim, fish, journal, and play games in their free time. No camping or canoeing skills are needed, just a willingness to embrace new experiences in wild places.
