About the Event

Join us for this beautiful laid-back trip in the northwoods. We start with a quick gear shakedown and group paddle instruction before put-in. Then, we navigate a series of lakes and portage trails to reach our site for the weekend. From there, you'll have lots of free time to paddle, swim, fish, practice new skills, or just kick back and relax. There is also a substantial trail system for hiking that is accessible right from our campsite. The initial travel time from our put-in spot to camp is roughly 3 hours.  

This is a perfect trip for anyone interested in canoeing and a great trip to prep for a Boundary Waters adventure later in the summer.  If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. This trip always draws a fun group.

Difficulty: Beginner/Intermediate

While this is a great beginner trip, participants MUST be comfortable in the water. Paddling and backpacking experience is a plus. You should have your own personal items such as clothing and tent. We also have rental gear available on a first-come, first-serve basis including packs, hammocks, mess kits, etc. Participants should be in good physical health, able to carry their personal gear, and able to help portage group gear including our lightweight canoes. 

Upon registration, you will have access to the group page for this event. All of the trip information including gear lists and directions can be found there.

Price: $425 Registration closes April 28th
