Northern Tier 2018 Trek
Troop 56 at Northern Tier 2018
July 21st - Aug 4th
Troop 56 has been selected for a Northern Tier Trek in the summer of 2018
Northern Tier is the BSA's oldest national High Adventure program, outfitting scouting groups for canoe trips since the summer of 1923. The Charles L Sommers Base has been home to the program since 1941.
High adventure of any type is a unique experience for young men (and old ones). Northern Tier is different from what most people experience; our Bases are gateways to over 2 million acres of wilderness. Crews will experience remote wilderness unlike anything they might have before.
The troop has signed up for a trek out of the Atikokan, ON - Donald Robert Canoe Base, located 80 miles north of Camp Sommers. We will have a choice of adventures ranging from 80 - 150 miles.
We will be setting up a payment scheduled shortly.
