Get paid to paddle and camp in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness!

Get paid this summer to paddle and camp in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness!

Northern Tier National High Adventure of the Boy Scouts of America is located just outside of Ely, MN. We offer 6-10 day wilderness canoe trips for youth and their adult leaders. The main positions we are trying to fill are the canoe trip leader positions, which are known as Interpreters.

The Interpreter is responsible for packing food and gear as well as route planning once the crew arrives. Once they are out on the water, the Interpreter is responsible for teaching the crew about the history of the area, flora and fauna, canoeing and camping skills, trail cooking, navigation, fishing, etc. As well as leadership skills and character development for the youth. From our location in Ely, we send groups into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the Quetico Provincial Park (Canada).

Other camp staff positions that we have available include Outfitting (food and gear), Trading Post, Maintenance, Living History, and Cook.

This is a great opportunity to get outdoors this summer, to get paid to canoe and camp, and to work with youth 13-18 years of age.

No experience is necessary or required. You will be trained in all aspects of the position upon arrival. Our season begins with staff training on May 28th and runs through about August 20th. There will be a few later start dates if you cannot make the first training session. We provide paid staff training, room and board is included in the pay, and first year staff members receive a $50 Trading Post (camp store) credit upon arrival that you can use towards any camping gear or staff uniforms that you may need.

You can visit our website at www.ntier.org for more information on the program and employment opportunities.

I encourage you to check out these exciting job opportunities and come spend a summer up in the Northwoods!
