The BWCA Wilderness (Boundary Waters Canoe Area) is located in North East Minnesota (above Lake Superior) along the Canadian Boarder.  If you have ever spoken to Scoutmaster Dave of Troop 85 then you may have heard about this as a High Adventure opportunity for the Scouts and Parents in Scouting.  Attached are two links to You Tube videos about BWCA.  1. is a story from a concerted US company that believes this area should be preserved. 2. Is a video about 3 men that took a week long canoe trip in the BWCA and what they saw and experienced.  There are many You Tube videos on this subject so after viewing these feel free to do more research.  It might be a great year for Troop 85 to send a crew to the BWCA for a lifetime event.  Crews are limited to 9 people and 4 vessels (canoe, kayak) with NO MOTORS.  Normal cost using Outfitters can be from $500 and up per person.  Our Troop at this time with equipment we own can keep cost much lower than using outfitters. Of course cost of Travel, food, Fuel and permits, number attending and vehicles required to transport WILL EFFECT Cost so a updated calculation would be required for a reasonably accurate cost estimate.
