Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana offers is offering this wonderful high adventure trip to Boundary Waters in Ely, MN. GKS Crews will enjoy two great tours in Ely, MN, at the International Wolf Center and the Dorothy Molter "The Root Beer Lady" Museam then hit the water for one of two beautiful trips. Crews will have their choice of which 5-day trip they wish to take into the majestic Boundary Waters.
Howling with the Wolves
Visit the International Wolf Center in Ely, MN, where you'll see and learn about these phenomenal animals that live in the Northwood's. Then, head out on a 5-day canoe trip, where you will have a chance to howl with the wolves (or at least hoot with the loons). This is a perfect blend of challenge and recreation for your first trip in the Boundary Waters. Paddle along beautiful lakes, try your hand at portaging, and enjoy swimming, exploring, singing, games, and nature. Enjoy a quiet night paddle on your last night in the woods, under a full moon!
Root Beer Tales
Visit the Dorothy Molter Museam in Ely, MN, where you'll learn all about the "Root Beer Lady" who spent her life in the Boundary Waters. Then, head out on a 5-day canoe trip to visit her actual home site, and experience life in the woods that she loved so much. Upon your return to the canoe base you will, of course, be treated to a bottle of ice cold root beer made from her original recipe.
