Opening for Northern Tier with Troop 69!
Troop 69 has one space available to attend Northern Tier as a guest of Troop 69.
The Crews are designed and work far more efficiently with a full crew of eight along with the Northern Tier guide: Nine seats in three canoes; nine items to carry and no one has to double up; four two person tents and the guide in their own; etc.
Basics … We can answer any additional questions anyone interested may have:
July 10 to 16, 2017
N. Tier Crews: E071017N E071017O
It is a mature set of Scouts on the two crews, most are OA and Life Rank. We have five adults and one 18-20 year old attending with lots of training and high-adventure experience.
Approx $640 for program only – does not include travel, incidentals, etc. Those fees will be determined at a future date. 2014 N.Tier total costs were ~$1300/person.
A Northern Tier trip is physically demanding. Direct from N.Tier Advisor’s Guide: “All participants must fall below the maximum (295 pounds) allowed weight for participation and it is strongly recommended that no participant weigh less than 100 pounds. Smaller participants will have a very difficult time due to the strenuous nature of the trek and the heavy weight of items to portage. All participants should be physically fit and must meet the height/weight requirements outlined in the BSA Health Record.”
