Our trips are important in a teen’s journey to manhood because of the following outcomes:
No experience necessary for either youth or mentor to go on our trips.
Participants can experience winter adventures such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and dog sledding. They’ll also learn winter survival skills such as snow cave construction, fire starting, etc. Safety is paramount and activities are adjusted for weather conditions.
Teens and mentors are led on a 6-day wilderness canoeing adventure in and around Boundary Waters, Minnesota. Boundary Waters is a 1.2 million acre Wilderness Area along the U.S.-Canadian border. No man-made structures, roads, or motorized vehicles are allowed and wildlife is abundant. Some of the best fishing in the country is found here and with over 1,000 lakes connected by more than 1,500 miles of canoe routes, it truly is a canoeing paradise.
Teens and Mentors will experience a 4-day Big Game hunting adventure for cow elk, doe or buck mule deer, or doe antelope. Deer hunts occur within a Youth-Only State Wildlife Area where we typically see 150-200 deer per day! Elk and antelope hunts take place on 80,000 acres of private land leased to Tri-State Outfitters, who generously donate the tags. Base Camp includes heated wall tents with cots and electricity, hot showers/flush toilets, and hearty meals. All firearms/ammo are provided.
