Troop 62 goes on Northern Tier trip

September 12, 2009

Boy Scout Troop 62 in Chewsville completed a 60- mile, weeklong canoe trip in the Canadian Crownlands, Ontario, Canada, from July 21 to 29 as part of the Boy Scouts of America Northern Tier High Adventure program.

While they were in the Northern Tier, they learned of cold weather camping, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and sleeping systems in the mountain areas.

During their travels, they also visited the Sears Tower in Chicago, Voyageur's National Park and attended a Minnesota Twins baseball game at the Metrodome.

Since 1923, Scouts have been voyaging into the north wilderness to seek adventure. Many see wildlife in their natural habitat, such as eagles, fish and moose, to name a few. These are some of the experiences by Scouts in Canada and the north woods of the United States. Northern Tier High Adventure program is the only outfitters in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Canada who are authorized to deliver the Scouting program to those Scouts and Leaders adventuring into North America Canoe Country.
