2023 Northern Tier (Boundary Waters) Canoe Trip- *Quick Response Requested*

The Northern Tier sign up opened yesterday and the slots have filled up rather quickly. Here is what I have for you:

This is a High Adventure Camp. Scouts must be a minimum of 14 years of age at the time of their trip (mid-June 2023) OR age 13 and have completed 8th grade. Scouts currently in 7th Grade or above are eligible to attend this trek next summer.

A crew shipping out of Ely, MN, is made up of 6-8 people (adults and youth). If we have more interest than 8, we need to reserve for more than one crew slot. Each crew will be separate from any other crew on the trip. So, if we have two crews, they would not camp or interact with each other during the trip.

The cost per CREW is $9,200. It doesn’t matter if there are 6 or 8 people on the crew, the cost is the same. Estimated cost per person is $1,150-$1,513 (depending on crew) size plus park fees, travel costs and incidentals.

Each trek is 10 Days long plus we’ll have to account for travel time on either end. We are planning to book a trek that starts in mid-June but cannot select a specific date until we know how many crews are needed. Estimated trek dates are between June 14-June 28 (trek start dates of June 14, 16 or 18).

We need to know who is committing ASAP since we would like to book by tomorrow at high noon.


Here is the sign up:


**If you age out between now and the trip, you can still attend as an adult leader, provided you are registered as an adult with the BSA and have completed all other requirements.
