We invite you to take part in our school and special interest group tours to embark on an educational experience with Wikwemikong Tourism. We offer customizable itineraries for schools with options between single and multi-day programs to accommodate your time frame and financial capacities. All group tours include a dedicated step-on guide who acts as your host and contact for the duration of your stay.
Wikwemikong Tourism itineraries provide students educational and engagement opportunities to learn about Anishnaabek culture, history, and lifestyle in the Manitoulin Island and Killarney region. More importantly, as we move forward in this time of reconciliation, our programs allow students to learn about the impacts of residential schools, treaty relationships and Anishnaabek culture directly from local knowledge keepers. Our land-based learning programs provide opportunities for students to engage in hands on seasonal cultural activities while learning about the importance of environmental stewardship.
All educational experiences are facilitated and designed by Indigenous academics and knowledge keepers with the goal of providing a balanced perspective while ensuring the best possible learning experience
