An Experience To Remember – Northern Tier High Adventure Base

October 26, 2017

Scouting gives youth the freedom to explore a world of experiences beyond the boundaries of their everyday life. For a handful of Boy Scouts in the Greater St. Louis Area Council, that couldn’t be more true.

This summer, 13 Scouts from East St. Louis and southeast Missouri headed north for the trip of a lifetime. The young men explored the pristine waters of Northern Tier High Adventure Base in northern Minnesota as part of a week-long canoe and portage trip.

The experience was made by possible through Northern Tier’s Scoutreach initiative. The goal is simple: Expand the reach of Scouting to youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity.

“An activity like this becomes an unforgettable lifetime achievement from which they can continue to build on,” said Ronald Green, Scout executive of the Greater St. Louis Area Council.

“It will give these young men a positive view of their own potential and help them realize they can accomplish things they didn’t know they could.”
