2018 Northern Tier High Adventure Canoe Trip

Posted on Feb 5 2017 - 12:08pm

We have reservations to go to BSA's Northern Tier during the summer of 2018 (30 June - 12 July). Northern Tier is a high adventure outing that involves canoeing, portaging and camping (includes fishing if you bring poles). Our adventure will take us across several lakes in Northwestern Ontario. Base camp is near Atikokan, Ontario. This area is gorgeous and pure wilderness, with small traces of human travel and has features such as trapper cabins, age-old gold mines and even a WWI prisoner of war camp.  The crew size is limited to two adults and 9 scouts ( if we don't have 9 scouts additional adults may attend, but scouts have priority).  There will also be an interpreter (guide) from base camp that will go with us for the entire trip (bringing our crew to a total of 12).  See the attached picture from our last trip in 2014.
