Celebrating 100 years of High Adventure in 2023!

Northern Tier is the premier Scouts BSA experience for canoeing and winter camping. We offer many different trek options for Scout troops and individuals seeking a high adventure opportunity. 

3 seasons 2 countries 1 adventure of a lifetime

Summer in North Americas Canoe Country is a time like no other. With lakes stretching as far as the eye can see, all connected through a large web of waterways, Scouts can travel effortlessly across them in specially designed tripping canoes. Completing short portages between waterways brings scouts from lake to lake as they explore the vast biodiversity of the Northern Boreal Forest unique to Northern Minnesota and Canada

Winter in Minnesota brings a whole new level of challenge to going outside and Northern Tier helps provide the gear and training for you to step up to the plate. Learn to never fear the cold again while experiencing all the great white north has to offer. Dog Sledding, cross country skiing, ice fishing, and winter camping are just a few of the activities awaiting you at Northern Tier

Autumn weather in canoe country has cooler nights, less bugs, and a gold colored forest, making it one of the best times to visit. During Autumn we offer our standard expedition canoe trips out of our Ely base, dedicated fishing trips and shorter weekend trips for younger scouts
