Northern Tier High Adventure Base for canoe treks in Summer 2017

Posted on Feb 3 2016 - 9:31pm

We have been awarded two crews to attend Northern Tier High Adventure Base for canoe treks in Summer 2017! In recent years, we have had several Scouts from the troop attend Northern Tier canoe treks and they all come back having had a great time!

Northern Tier offers wilderness canoeing expeditions in Northern Minnesota, Northwestern Ontario and Northeastern Manitoba through three canoe bases (our treks will originate from, and return to, the ELY, MN base). A highly trained staff member, called an Interpreter, accompanies all crews on their trek. Particulars of the trip are outlined below. Additional information about this fantastic BSA facility can be obtained at their website (www.ntier.org) or from those who have already attended.

The cost of the trek is expected to be approximately $1,200 per participant, including airfare. A deposit of $200 will be required by February 1st at which time a binding commitment is required. If you are interested in attending, please email Tom Zelewski (tomz@troop928.org )  as soon as possible. We will establish the roster and waiting list based on emails in order received, subject to receipt of deposit and commitment forms by the deadline. Priority will be given to Scouts with parents also attending (for the first three adults for each crew). We have spots for up to 16 participants (Scouts and adults). We must have at least 2 adults attending per crew. All adults attending must register as BSA leaders and must take Youth Protection Training. Wilderness First Aid training is also required.

We need a volunteer to be the lead adult advisor for the treks. This person will assume responsibility going forward for the planning and logistics of the trip.
