Details

We have exciting news about high adventure opportunities for next summer, and an ask for all of you. 

Last month we had a successful lottery application with Northern Tier for next summer (2021)! Our approved details are for 2 crews to travel between the Ely, MN base and the Atikokan, ON base (they will be swapping places and NOT starting together) via trips which are 9 days on water. 


If you ask anyone from last summer’s 8-day canoeing trip in Canada, they will confirm that these two trips will be some of the most extreme, rewarding, challenging, and unforgettable wilderness adventures that anyone in the troop can go on in their scouting careers. Just think, you can literally complete a trip which the historic voyageurs of the north woods completed more than 200 years ago…maybe you will see black bears on distant shores…maybe you will catch a 34” long northern pike for dinner…maybe you will see the Northern Lights shining in the night sky…maybe you will wave to a moose as you complete another portage trail…and maybe you will see historic rock paintings and carvings made by native Ojibwe tribe members from before the time of the voyageurs if you manage to not get lost... All of these experiences are possible at Northern Tier.
