Boundary Waters Canoe Adventure 2021

Project Success has been bringing middle school students to the BWCA every year since 1998 and we have only had to cancel the trip once – in 2020, due to COVID.

Before the trip was cancelled, we had many students who had already been registered for the trip and were understandably very disappointed that they were not able to go. We had made a promise to those students that if we were safely able to offer the trip in 2021, that they would get the first chance to apply.

This year, we were thrilled to be able to keep that promise to those students! After thoughtful planning around COVID mitigation efforts with our partners at Wilderness Canoe Base, we were able to offer our BWCA Canoe Trips with limited groups in July. Due to new COVID precautions and capacity restrictions, we had a lot fewer spots available than we have had in the past. We therefore invited those students whose trip was cancelled in 2020 and students who studied the BWCA with us in our virtual Outdoor Clubs last year.

We wish we could have taken everyone who was interested. Next year, we look forward to offering the trip to more students than ever before from our PS middle schools!
