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.

What are you doing in 2021? Don’t miss your chance at a lottery spot for adventure!

Winter is Coming - Individual Adventures Available!

If you need a different type of adventure, check out our individual adventures – open to those that cannot find a unit to travel with.  Programs available at both the Ely, MN and Twin Lake, MI locations.  Come up to see a new side of Northern Tier and enjoy the views we have all come to love  in a different light.
