Located in northern Minnesota, the Boundary Waters is a roadless area set aside for canoe campers who want to experience the mystery, solitude and rugged beauty of a true wilderness. Our trip includes five days of canoeing. We'll set up tents in primitive campsites each night, cook meals over a camp stove, and portage our gear around waterfalls and rapids. Tents, sleeping bags, canoes, cook gear, and food will be provided. Bunk house lodging and showers the night before and after the canoe trip, as well as transportation by van, are also included. Participants must be physically able to paddle a canoe and carry gear across rocky trails. Though canoeing skills will be reviewed prior to the trip, previous canoeing experience and the ability to paddle safely and efficiently on opposite sides is required. A detailed orientation meeting will be scheduled for July. Deposit fee of $100 is required prior to July 1; full payment required after July 1.

For adults ages 18 and up. This is a strenuous program.

Fee per person: $790 (resident / non-resident)
