Welcome to the Agawak Wilderness Trips Program! We are looking forward to this summer and all of the new trips & exciting changes we have in store. We have some great adventures planned and are very excited to meet all of you!
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, but those interested can sign up for various trips throughout the summer. Some of these 'open-signup' trips include: Hiking at Copper Falls State Park, Day trips to Crystal Lake, Raven trail, and many more! As for CIT's, they will participate in our long-standing tradition of extended trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Areas. We are excited to announce that the PA’s will be going to the Porcupine Mountains this year, where they will canoe, and hike along Lake Superior.
