Our troop has started planning our first ever High Adventure trip to BSA Northern Tier canoe base.  Come join us for a week-long canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Our trip will take place in June 2019 (yes, 18 months away) with the exact dates TBD based on lottery draw in early February 2018.

Based on number of interested scouts and adults - we may field 1 or 2 crews (2 adults plus 6 scouts each).  Participants must be 14 years old / completed 8th grade and must pass the BSA swimmer's test.

Estimated cost is $900 - $1200 per person, including travel costs.  We'll know more as we determine our exact itinerary.  A $100 deposit (due February 2018) will be required to hold a spot on the crew. 

High Adventure trips are amazing, fun, challenging, and out of this world - come join us for this unique opportunity!
