Gem Lake

Others, Child Poverty

Contributed by: Inner City Youth Alive

Gem Lake Wilderness Camp is set a world away from the pressures and conflicts of the inner city in the beautiful Nopiming Provincial Park, located 250 km North of Winnipeg (past Lac du Bonnet). After the long 3 hour drive, our kids then hike 2 km to the lake, where boats shuttle them 4 km to the camp in the summer. In winter, kids experience a 6 km snowmobile ride to reach camp. The camp program is specifically designed for the youth of the inner city, offering an adventure they have never experienced before.
