Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America’s gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods. In the summer, Scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba.

Trading Post Special!

All crews visiting Northern Tier this summer, will need waterproof storage for all of their personal gear.  Now is the time to plan ahead!  It is recommended that each participant have a 25-30L Dry Bag for their personal needs.  Dry boxes are great ideas for passport, ID and fishing license storage.  You will want map cases for your maps in each canoe (recommend 2-4 per crew).

Dry Boxes, Dry Bags and Map Cases are on sale now. 20% off and free shipping with code Dry20.
