The campers have come from far and wide and are having a fantastic time in the beautiful surroundings of Algonquin Park.

Quetico Past and Present

The Taylor Statten Camps have been sending campers to trip in Quetico Provincial Park since 1965. For 36 days trippers go without basic necessities often taken for granted in the modern world: a roof overhead, a comfy bed, a shower, a microwave, cars, electricity, stores, the list goes on. For this time a cabin group [...] continue reading >
