Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America’s gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods. In the Summer, scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba. In the winter, Northern Tier is home to the OKPIK Cold-Weather Camping program, the BSA's premier winter high adventure program. Fall programming is also available.
Length: July 28 - Aug 8
Camp Emerald Bay
Join us at camp for activities like Archery, Kayaking, Hiking, Canoeing, and more. Pet a shark at the Marine Science Center, Perform a song or skit at the campfire, and explore local coves and beaches that are completely undeveloped.
On Labor Day weekend, we'll be camping and hiking in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Lassen is a spectacular destination - there's nothing like it in California! It's a great opportunity for experienced Scouts to --
start off a new year of scouting
exercise your leadership muscles and neurons
explore a volcanic landscape
hike through a 1/4-mile underground lava tube,
hike to a geothermal region with boiling lakes, bubbling mudpots and roaring fumeroles -
climb the Lassen Peak trail!
Along with welcoming any scouts who want to go (first come, first serve, of course), we're also looking for ASMs to sign up. We need two more Lead ASMs, and more ASMs for driving, hiking, and enjoying the beauty of Lassen.
We can accommodate only 25 participants (total - Scouts plus ASMs). To sign up, open the attached trip brochure, follow the link to the google form and fill that out, and send a check to Edita Donnelly, the Lassen Trip Coordinator. Like I said, first come, first serve. This trip will fill up. [Flyer]
