Boundary Waters Adventure

AGES 12-16



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.


August 1st-6th
