An intro to the BWCA Growing up in Ely, MN canoeing and camping was a way of life, a hobby, and an ‘easy’ means of vacation.  My love for this slow way of travel began at a very early stage. My parents took us into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) at a young age; starting with a few days at an easily accessible campsite where we would make forts and explore the woods to multiple days of travels stopping only to set up camp. The BWCA consists of a million acres of woods and lakes with restrictions on the use of motorized equipment. Travel is accessible by means of watercraft, the lakes are linked by land portages which you carry your equipment over. When reminiscing about trips it tends to be the ones in inclement weather, the really buggy year, or basically the more challenging ones that stand out in your memory.  In high school I partnered up with my good friend and our dads to travel a section of the Border Route. The Border Route was means of travel for the voyageurs almost the entire width of Minnesota along the Canadian Border. We took a week with the goal in mind to follow the route from...

A Few Tips for Planning a Wilderness Canoe Camping Trip with Children Here are a few tips for things to consider when planning a BWCA trip with children.   Find a life vest that is comfortable and fits properly. Pack a good set of raingear, hat, and sunglasses. (head net if necessary) Bring plenty of sunscreen, bug spray, and itch balm Involve the children in menu planning and food preparation. Bring along special snacks and treats for good behavior rewards. Learn about the area, plants and animals before the trip. Bring identification books for birds, plants, trees and wildlife. A deck of cards, a flashlight, and a couple of good books are perfect for tent time. Spend time in the canoe creating stories of your own where everyone takes turns adding to it. Let the children have their own disposable camera for capturing their own memories. Have the children write in a journal each evening. Don't forget the S'mores.   In a world where children know characters on television better than their own family members and can name locations in their favorite video game but can't tell you the name of everyone in their class, something is wrong. It is time to teach your child a lesson, time to get the paddle out, get outside...
