2003 Northern Tier Patch
Central New Jersey Council
The Northern Tier National High Adventure Bases are a collection of high adventure bases run by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) of Minnesota, Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park, Manitoba's Atikaki Provincial Wilderness Park and points beyond. It is the oldest of the three National High Adventure Bases operated by the Boy Scouts of America. Its counterparts are the Philmont Scout Ranch, the Florida National High Adventure Sea Base and the Summit.
Northern Tier offers wilderness canoe trips. There are no lodgings along the trail, and aircraft and motorboats are restricted. Typical treks may cover 50 to 150 miles and take 6 to 10 days. With each crew is an instructor called an "Interpreter" who is sometimes called a "Charlie Guide."
