I think this is a good choice. FWIW, if an adult with no prior backcountry experience came to me and said, "I want you to take me on an overnight backcountry canoe trip," I'd still probably pick a base camp approach in that situation as well, even without kids involved.

And like I said- the more challenging trips will definitely come in time. And with easier trips already under your belt, you'll be able to tackle those more challenging itineraries with greater confidence that your kids are up to the task.
