Boundary Waters Canoe Trips

Located 18 miles northeast of Ely, MN, just a short paddle from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), Northern Lakes Canoe Base is a wilderness tripping camp that offers completely outfitted canoe trips. Girls ages 12-18 — and adults — come on 3, 5, 7, and 10 day canoe trips. Participants come from Minnesota and throughout the United States. Girl Scout canoe guides are certified in Lifeguarding and Wilderness First Aid (WFA), and they work hard to create a warm and caring atmosphere, where girls are allowed to let their personalities shine. Participants leave with a smile, great stories, and a renewed appreciation for their natural surroundings, their own strength, and the power of teamwork. Safety is always our top priority, and we have an excellent safety record spanning over 50 years of guiding teenage girls through the wilderness.

If you are not currently a Girl Scout, no problem. Simply register to be a Girl Scout when you register for your trip. This will not affiliate you with a troop, and is necessary for participation in our programs.

NLCBAA works closely with Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines on promoting this small but mighty program.
