Our High Adventure Canoe Trips
All of our outfitting services are designed to give Boy Scout troops flexibility.
YOUR High Adventure Boundary Waters crew:
- Sets the requirements for your participants to attend
- Determines the number of participants (starting with eight)
- Picks the number of days on the water (starting with five)
- Picks the arrival day of the week
- Picks whether to stay overnight before or after at our lake side base
- Picks the starting entry point location
- Picks the pace of the trip
- Picks the goals of the trip
- Picks the number of layover days on the trip
(Of course we give our best advice for your needs on all of these)
The success of any high adventure program is more about the people you go with than the place you go.
A perfect trek may have crystal blue skies, comfortable temperatures, and no bugs. But it becomes a slow death march with a poorly prepared, poorly led crew. Likewise a few days hiking in the rain with a sharp crew leads to lifelong golden memories.
A High Adventure canoe trip should take your crew to a new level in the outdoors. It should develop the aims of Scouting:
- Growth in confidence,
- The opportunity to both lead and follow, and
- An appreciation for each crew member’s contribution to the group’s efforts.
Good equipment, good food, good surroundings, and good weather are all part of the picture. The biggest part is the challenge and satisfaction of accomplishing the goals of your high adventure canoe trip program. Setting these goals, knowing their importance, and preparing to meet them is the most important aspect of the trip. North Country can help with all of these.
