BWCA Group & Scouting Venturing Trips


Boy Scouts and other Youth Groups have been Venturing the Boundary Waters Canoe Area for nearly a century. Venturing and canoeing are almost synonymus with all youth groups because the wilderness here is canoe country and that is what Scouting and other outdoor programs are all about.

Where else can the Scout Motto, Be Prepared, be put to the test in such an incredible fashion.  The Canoe Country is what Scouting is all about. It is where planning and preparation is rewarded with backcountry comfort and adventure.  Youth have a rare opportunity to experience camping and outdoor life just as it was experienced by the early native American and the Voyageur.  The outdoor skills that the youth learn can all be put to the test here.  Here it is real and not just a hypothetical book exercise.

We have put together a great planning resource for you.  Our Leader Guide and DVD will help you from start to finish in preparing for your trip.


It would be our pleasure to provide you with a group leader orientation booklet and DVD.  To request your Leader Kit, either e-mail with your name, address, and phone number, and please make sure that "leader booklet request" is inserted in the subject line, or follow this link to the contact us page and fill in the appropriate information.

This booklet will provide you with all the information you will need to have a successful experience in the Canoe Country as a youth group leader. The booklet has a complete planning checklist, a what to bring list, pricing, entry permit information, parental consent forms and all the other information we believe is essential to your youth group trip.

At Williams and Hall we recognize that group canoe trips have special needs, circumstances and limitations (i.e., tight budgets). Not every group is the same. With this in mind, we will visit with you personally about your specific needs and expectations. You won't have to worry about pre-set restrictions and limitations. Our main objective is to see that your groups' needs and expectations are met, in both service and economic considerations.

Our rates are included in your youth group leader package. Also, be sure to check out our Super Saver Package! Start your trip before June 30th or after August 15th and receive a 10% discount off the package price. This is a great value for youth groups! More details can be found in the group leader package...
