Girl Scout Canoe Guides work hard to create a warm and caring atmosphere, where girls are allowed to let their personalities shine. They are usually in college or recently graduated from college, with a unique blend of wilderness, Girl Scouting, and BWCAW experience. In addition to certifications in Lifeguarding and Wilderness First Aid (WFA), all Guides go through a rigorous and hands-on training at the canoe base. One of the most common comments we hear from both youth and adult participants is that they had no idea how fun, involved, talented, and hard-working their guides would be!

Ann encourages every teenage girl she knows to sign up for a fun, confidence-building, and safe Girl Scout canoe trip in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas around. An advocate for both girls and the wilderness, her recent efforts have focused on bringing awareness of the Girl Scout canoe trip program to a wider audience. For many years now, her devotion to the program has only trailed her devotion to her family.
