 We are excited to announce NLCBAA Reunion & Work Weekend at the canoe base this summer, June 8th-11th, 2023.  We have been working with the Girl Scouts Lakes and Pines council and Program Director Ann McNally to plan property projects to support the base.

We welcome any and all skill levels to help with several tasks- from changing light bulbs, to doing yard work, to erecting new structures on base. While we plan to share the official worklist in spring, trust that we will need all the help we can get! We would love to see you for the entire weekend, or even just one day. 

This will also serve as this year’s NLCBAA reunion so we welcome families, and will host programming similar to years’ prior. Some key details: 

  • Camping will be open on base- feel free to camp on site, or arrange your own accommodation and come to-and-from base. We also welcome day-trippers to park on-site as needed. 

  • Thursday-late Saturday afternoon will consist of work projects & evening activities, and Sunday will be a cleanup/travel day. 

  • Meals will be provided on base and covered by NLCBAA.

  • Saturday's celebration banquet will be at Ely Nordic Chalet and will be an evening to remember! 

  • Tshirt and hoodie sales are coming soon!

  • There is funding for Alumni and Guests to attend the banquet at a free- or reduced price. Don't let lack of funds keep you away. ( email Nicole or make a note in your registration so that we can have enough food!)
