posted Nov 14, 2017, 12:39 AM by Webmaster Troop 13
Troop 13 - Based on the interest expressed by the Troop and Troop Committee, we are planning a trip to Northern Tier High Adventure base next summer. 

Northern Tier is a Boy Scout wilderness canoeing and camping adventure in the boundary waters of Northern Minnesota. A number of our current and past scouts have traveled to Northern Tier and had a great time. We're looking forward to another great trip in 2018! Feel free to check out the Northern Tier website.

For scouts who are interested in Northern Tier:

Eligibility: Scouts must be 14 years of age at the time of the trip in late July 2018; Eagle Scouts may attend.

Confirmation of Crews/Crew Size: Northern Tier will have constraints on numbers of participants in a crew, so we will need to have confirmation of participation before we are able to finalize our plans.

Dates: Sunday, July 29 - Friday, August 10, 2018 / Fly from Boston on Sunday, July 29; Northern Tier adventure begins on Tuesday, July 31; depart and fly home to Boston on Friday, August 10, 2018

Costs: The total estimated cost per person, including fees, food and airfare, is $1,900. Once we book airfare and determine the specific itinerary, the cost may be adjusted up or down slightly.

Confirmation: Please confirm both scout and adult interest by emailing Sarah Bassett at by Monday, November 20, 2017.

Deposit: $600 non-refundable deposit by check, made out to Troop 13 Needham, is due by Friday, November 24, 2017; please deliver checks to Sarah Bassett (in person at Scout meeting or at 36 Laurel Drive)

A trip payment schedule and more information will follow. 

Should you have any questions, please let me know. 

Many thanks,

Sarah Bassett
