Boundary Waters Adventure

AGES 12-16

BOUNDARY WATERS ADVENTURE

Since 1922, our partners at YMCA Camp Menogyn have led canoeing excursions in the Boundary Waters Wilderness Area along the Canadian border in Northeastern Minnesota. With the exception of a satellite phone carried by the trip leader; phones, tablets, computers and anything electronic is safely stored at camp.  Our group will instead utilize the original form of social media - sitting around a campfire and talking to each other!
While learning to do things such as setting up base camp, cooking outside and learning to navigate a canoe, teens learn to work together as a team.  Before the paddles hit the water, teens spend time getting to know the members of their group through teambuilding activities, route planning and meal preparation.
