Designed to introduce campers to the world of paddling a canoe and water navigation, campers will explore an average of 5-8 miles a day in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Campers learn how and what to pack, how to choose and set up camp, and cook delicious meals outdoors. No prior wilderness trip experience is required. What to expect on a canoe trip.
