Group Outfitting

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is a unique area for an adventure trip for organized groups, such as Boy Scouts, Church Youth Groups and School Groups, etc. to visit and explore. This vast canoeing wilderness is an adventure from start to finish. You might be paddling around a corner one minute and see a moose feeding, or fishing around a beaver house and feel the hit from a nice northern pike. Then there is the quality time around the campfire, setting up your camp, and planning your next day’s adventure. Nature presents you with a peaceful and undisturbed setting in the Boundary Waters Wilderness to use as you wish — to be as structured or open as you please.

Scout Groups

This is Scouting country—that can often be best enjoyed using a private outfitting company. A canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Country gets Scouts out into the country camping, cooking, navigating, fishing, exploring and doing all the things they have been training for.

School Groups

The BWCA wilderness is a living laboratory and a work of nature in progress–ever changing, by the seasons and by the years. There are a multitude of opportunities for learning in a variety of disciplines, plus the personal growth, leadership development and confidence building opportunities.

Church Groups

It is a place for bonding, for leadership, and for personal development. These are some of the values we all hope to share with our youth – as parents, as church leaders and as educators. Special moments can be created in so many ways—like, letting everyone step into the forest to a solo quiet spot to just listen and contemplate.

Company Affiliated Groups
