Intro to Boundary Waters

For Campers Entering Grades 7–8

2017 information will be available in November.

Learn the basics of canoeing, camping and navigation in a fun, supportive environment. Campers spend three days on training and orientation at Widji. Then, guided by two counselors, groups of four to six hit the trail for 6–10 days in the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness.

Although canoeing and portaging can be demanding, working as a team allows campers to accomplish more together than they could as individuals. All campers are expected to pitch in and do their share of the work, carrying packs and tents across portages, which may be up to a mile long!
