Nonprofit Outfitting- Carrying On The Tradition Of Service

At Packsack Canoe Trips, we have been providing nonprofit trekkers outstanding service for the past 19 years. We truly believe that nonprofit groups are one of the best ways to introduce the Boundary Waters to today’s youth. Because we were once a scouting family, we have the knowledge and experience to better serve your group, plus we make extra efforts to ensure your every question is answered. We understand the challenges that it takes to get our youth involved in the outdoors, that's why we are committed to offering your nonprofit group special rates and the same great service to ensure your group's success on the forest floor. Whether it’s the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Church Groups, Inner City youth, or many of the adult nonprofit groups, we are here for you from the initial planning up until you dip your paddles into our pristine waters.

One question that we ask every group we outfit is “What are your Abilities and Desires?” We will ask your group what it is you want to accomplish on your trip. Your group may want to do a lot of fishing or want to see lots of countryside or do both. We match your desires and abilities with an entry point that will offer your group a memorable trip.  Remember, you are here to have fun and enjoy the wilderness. Many of the entry points offer different challenges at different times of the year, which explains the concept (you never know what is around the next corner!).


Because nonprofit groups do take more initial planning, we suggest you begin planning early. Call or email us today to find out how we can help get your youth into the woods!
