|Northern Tier Opportunity at an
Summer 2018 Northern Tier Trek - $600.00 OFF!
Tuscarora Troop 422 is now offering a $600 reduction in cost for attendees to Northern Tier!
They are in need of 2 to 4 Scouts who want to be a part of their 2 crews going to Northern Tier in Ely (Pronounced EAL-EE) Minnesota this summer.
Trek departs on Wednesday June 27th at 6am and returns to Raleigh on Friday July 6th around midnight.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Trek leaders can give any interested individuals the low-down on what they will need and how they need to prepare.
This is a "canned trip" that a Scout may never get the opportunity to do again if they are currently between the ages of 15 and 18. This trip has taken a lot of planning and training and the adult leaders are ready to go with the necessary training already completed.
Original cost of this trip including:
* 7 Day High Adventure Trip to Northern Tier - US and Canadian Boundary Waters
* Round Trip Airfare
* BlueSky Adventures 4.5hr Shuttle Service to and from Minneapolis - Base Northern Tier
They are now offering this opportunity for $1500.00 ! A $600 discount!
Final night hotel room is not included and spending money will still need to be considered.
