The CITs have returned from a successful boundary waters trip safe and sound. Trip staff have been preparing all session for the week long excursion to Northern Minnesota and Canada. This was the first year that Agawak outfitted itself with food and gear, still using Gunflint Outfitters for canoes and accommodations.

There were four groups this year, Group One led by Johannes & Rachel, Group Two by Josh & Bridget, Group Three by Amy & Laura, and Group Four by Emma, Jordyn, & Casey. All groups were out for 3-nights and 4 days canoeing the expanse of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

The trip departed on Wednesday, July 20th around 9am. The bus stopped for the traditional McDonald's lunch on the way up & continued on its way North to Grand Marais, MN. The girls hung out at the lodge watching movies & playing games, getting to bed early to prep for the early morning wake up to head out in canoes. The four groups were dropped off with boats and gear at their entry points & their journeys began.

Weather was generally good overall with lots of sun the first two days, cooling off a bit for the second two. The groups met up on Sunday afternoon after being shuttled back to the lodge. Excitement and stories ensued along with songs and cheers that the groups had made up about the trip. The final night was spent together in the Canoer cabins. Busses rolled back into camp around 2pm on the 25th being met with hugs and greetings from the awaiting camp.
