Northern Tier

Get your crew to Northern Tier with Blue Sky Adventures

If your unit is heading to Northern Tier in Ely, MN, and you want to stay over at Base Camp, we partner with a great Scout travel company called Blue Sky Adventures. 2019 will begin the 5th year of our partnership with Blue Sky Adventures and so far our participants and staff have nothing but great things to say about the experience.

What's Included?

Blue Sky covers everything once you touch down at MSP International Airport to Ely, MN and back. They'll handle transportation, food, programming, lodging, and peace of mind. Your guide will meet you at the MSP baggage claim and help you with any issues that may arise. Then you'll hop on the light rail train to Base Camp to spend the night.

Depending on when you arrive you'll have the opportunity to choose from some great activities. You might go on a bicycle ride or hike around the Historic Fort Snelling State Park. You can even get back on the light rail and ride over to the Mall of America for some food and shopping. A pizza dinner will be provided back at Base Camp.

Back at Base Camp

The fun never stops! After dinner, you'll be able to climb our indoor rock wall, test your courage on our indoor ropes course, or even practice your skills on our indoor archery range. We also have a large indoor area for basketball, football, dodgeball, or 4-square. We'll end the night with a movie on our huge projector screen. The following morning will consist of a continental breakfast before you pack up and hop on the Northern Tier Express provided by Minnesota Coaches. Don't worry, there's a stop for lunch during the 5-hour trip.

Once your trek is complete the Blue Sky Express will pick you up for a non-stop trip back to MSP.
