Gunflint Trail Outfitters want you to "Wet Your Paddle" this summer in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

To attract families to enjoy the great outdoors, outfitters in the area are hosting an hour of free canoeing each day of the week! If you don't know how to canoe or even hold a paddle, no worries; they will teach you!

I've been dreaming about camping in the Boundary Waters for as long as I can remember. It seems this summer is the perfect opportunity to finally do it!

You can choose your preferred outfitter, but you must canoe during the specified hour to escape the normal fee.

The campaign starts today and runs until July 17th, so you have plenty of time to plan a trip.
