|First Appearance||So, Uh This Is My Team?|
Unlike its predecessor, Pahkitew Island is not equipped with any facilities other than the outhouse confessional that survived Camp Wawanakawa's destruction. As such, the contestants are required to build their own shelter but only Pimâpotew Kinosewak had their shelter built, a treehouse near the beach. Waneyihtam Maskwak initially built a wizard's tower but after its destruction, they moved into a cave. For food, the campers are required to forage for their own. Located to the west of the island is the campfire pit where elimination ceremonies are held.
Like Camp Wawanakwa, Pahkitew Island was believed to be an artificial island despite what Chris claims to be a Cree historical site. For several episodes, contestants (notably Jasmine, Shawn, and Scarlett) discover something is going on with the island such as changes in landscapes, plants which are not native to Western Canada, such as manchineel trees and Chinese mulberry bushes, and odd cave structures.
In This Is The Pits!, Scarlett discovers that most, if not all, of the island's wildlife may be artificial after discovering that the crocodile which was chasing her and Max was actually an animatronic robot. Scarlett salvages and reverse engineers components from the destroyed robotic crocodile to build a remote control device and discovers a secret elevator in the cave using it; however, Scarlett loses the device when Max throws it out of the elevator, believing that it was junk.
In Hurl and Go Seek, Scarlett discovers that the entire island is actually controlled by a super computer after finding a large circuit board hidden within a tree. As she attempts to hack the circuit board, Max vomits on it, shorting it out and causing the entire island to go haywire at the end of the episode as Chris attempts to sign off.
In Scarlett Fever, Chris reveals that most of the island is indeed artificial, and the island's self-destruct sequence has been activated, giving the campers one hour to shut it down. While infiltrating the island's underground control facility to find the main terminal, the campers (besides Scarlett) discover that the animals on the island are all robots, and Chris uses some of them as a security countermeasure. Ultimately, after a series of hijinks involving Scarlett going rogue and demanding the million dollars, Sky manages to stop the self-destruct sequence at the last second. At the end of the episode, the island's systems are still malfunctioning as Sector A of the island is set on fire and Sector B is frozen solid.
In Sky Fall, Chris shuts down the central computer which controls most the island; also, the Interns manage to contain the fire in Sector A and partially defrost Sector B. Although Chris disabled the island's terraforming and weather generation systems, he still utilizes robotic crocodiles and bears as obstacles during the challenge.
In Lies, Cries and One Big Prize, Chris reboots the island's central computer, which has since been repaired, re-enabling the island's terraforming and weather generating capability. In the final leg of the challenge, Chris allows Dave and Jasmine, who were originally selected as the helpers for Sky and Shawn, respectively, to manipulate the island's systems by remote control to prevent the final two from crossing the finish line.
