Campers in this session will take a six-day, off-site trip to experience all the excitement and adventure of kayak camping in the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest. Youth will spend the first days at Camp Northwoods preparing for their trip, then travel by van to the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest (about 1.5 hours away). Once there, campers will head out on a six-day, five-night kayaking trip following the Manitowish River as it winds through the forest and sometimes widens into lakes. Each day campers will paddle down the river and set up camp at a different shoreline campsite. After completing their kayak trip, campers will return to Camp Northwoods to clean up and celebrate!

Prerequisites: Previous remote camping and canoeing or kayaking experience is recommended. Campers should be prepared to paddle 6-12 miles per day as well as occasionally portage (carry) boats around dams or rapids Since longer trip programs can be challenging, campers will be asked to fill out a pre-camp survey about their experience level when registering for six-day or longer trips. This helps make the experience safer and more enjoyable for all campers.

Cadettes will earn their Trailblazer and Primitive Camper Badges; Seniors will earn the Adventure Camper Badge (included).

Bus transportation to and from camp is included in the cost of registration. We provide a bus to Camp Northwoods with stops in Eagan and at Camp Lakamaga. Details can be found on the Bus to Northwoods page.
