Northern Tier Canoe Trek
DATES & SCHEDULE:The goal of a Northern Tier canoe trip is to have each participant have a wilderness adventure that lasts a lifetime. Through isolated interactions within their crew in the rugged wilderness, Scouts learn physical fortitude and mental strength, along with lessons in leadership, the importance of doing their share of the work, and the necessity of teamwork to accomplish difficult tasks. Northern Tier facilitates all of this through a youth led experience.
