Welcome to the Agawak Wilderness Trips Program! We are looking forward to this summer!
All of Agawak's tripping staff have extensive trip guiding experience which ranges from backpacking, hiking, openwater guiding- to wintersports, mountaineering, and international excursions among much more! Our lead guides are certified Wilderness First Responders (WFR). WFR's have extensive training related to medical care in the backcountry. Because wilderness emergency situations typically occur in areas where there is delayed time to advanced care (ie., hospitals and doctors) due to the remoteness of the location & methods of evacuation available, Wilderness First Responders are trained in advanced life support, dislocation reduction & medical oxygen & drug administration as well as rescue & evacuation techniques.
All Agawak campers have the opportunity to not only spend a night in our on-site teepee. Our CIT's, will participate in our long-standing tradition of an extended trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Areas. Our PA’s will also take a 3 day excursion, where they will canoe, and hike, location to be determined.
