This summer the Outfitters of the Gunflint Trail have launched a new program—-focused on making the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness more accessible and welcoming to families.
Check out http://www.becomingaboundarywatersfamily.com/ for the seminar schedule and the Woods Wisdom-pdf files. Stefan leads the Thursday night Tuscarora seminar—portaging and paddling basics.
We believe these woods hold great value for kids–for their physical, emotional, and cognitive well being. And we think that the wilderness also makes the perfect backdrop for family adventures–to build memories and make connections.
These kids will grow up to take care of what they know and love—and it is our privilege to witness some of the moments–as these families introduce their kids to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
Andy, next time tell me to suck in my gut before taking the picture…Ha! See you in a few days, Todd
