Upper Midwest: Adventure-Based Trips: Boundary Waters Canoe Area

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) is the closest pristine wilderness area to Luther College and offers an unparalleled chance for students to challenge themselves while building community with fellow travelers. Students will build resilience and trust as they face the unpredictable and beautiful landscape of the Upper Midwest. Students will spend six days in community sharing stories and engaging in meaningful conversations about their fears, hopes, identity, and culture as they canoe and camp through the majestic waters of the BWCA.  Two student leaders and one faculty/staff mentor will accompany each trip.

Scholarships & Financial Aid:

A program free of $250 covers all meals, transportation, activities, rental fee, and rustic accommodations for the week.  Significant financial aid is available for program fees and is based on a student's relative need as demonstrated by their financial aid package.  Luther College helps to subsidize the cost of each trip; cost should not be a barrier to participation.   Please contact Emily Neal for more information.
