Welcome to Camp Pathfinder! Located on Source Lake off RT60 in Algonquin Provincial Park
Algonquin from the Air
Algonquin Park is 7,000 sq. miles of world-renowned canoe wilderness. Pathfinder is located on its own private island inside the Park interior.

Home of the Park's red canoes, Pathfinder sends out 75+ canoe trips each season, ranging from overnights for the young guys, to 6-week far north expeditions.
Thanks for touring a Pathfinder season with us!
Front of the Island
Little has changed in 104 years but for the growth of the forest here
Pathfinder Island comprises about 17-acres of untouched forest on the north end, with rustic tent lodges, cabins, docks and dining hall facing southwest at the opposite end.
View from the Flagpole- Davis Island in the distance.
Campers ages 7-16 come from all over the world.
A staff of 75 counselors provide a 1:2 camper ratio and lots of personal attention.
From 1914, steam trains provided the only access.
Boys arrived by train for decades. Today, Pathfinder boys arrive at a mainland dock via motorcoach, car or van from homes and airports across the northeast.

Arrival days start with a personal welcome right at the dock by a boy's own counselor
