OA Wilderness Voyage at Northern Tier

OA Voyage at Northern Tier

The Order of the Arrow Wilderness Voyage program is a fourteen-day experience at the Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base, part of the Northern Tier National High Adventure Bases, in Ely, Minnesota.

The OA Voyage program is inspired by the traditions of the French Voyageurs who ventured the northern wilderness during the 1700-1800's. Traveling thousands of miles by water and portage, these Voyageurs were hired to haul goods and furs to trade with Native Americans and Europeans. In the spirit of these adventurers, Arrowmen will embark on a voyage that is twofold.

One-half of the OA Northern Tier Wilderness Voyage focuses on portage trail and campsite maintenance within the Boundary Waters. The remaining expedition is spent on a canoeing adventure that is planned and chosen by the participants in the program.
