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, to visit and explore. This vast 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 lodge 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 be best enjoyed using a private outfitting company. A canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Country gets Scouts out into the wilderness. Camping, cooking, navigating, fishing, exploring and engaging the skills they have been learning.

School Groups

The BWCAW wilderness is a living laboratory and a work of nature in progress – ever changing over the seasons and years. There are a multitude of opportunities for learning in a variety of disciplines, 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. Allowing everyone step into the forest to a solo quiet spot to just listen and contemplate.
