Join us in the BWCA

When was the last time you were able to get away and forget about all the stresses in your life? The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) is an amazing experience, one of peace and reflection that cannot be matched by any other place in the world.

We at the Center are committed to honoring and preserving the best stories in the Northland. In order to educate the public, the center relies on veterans to provide their stories and artifacts. We appreciate the trust veterans place in us to tell their stories and want to give back to the veteran community.

We are aware of the many issues facing veterans today. In an effort to assist in healing and build healthy relationships within our community we are offering a FREE BWCA trip for veterans. Nothing but fishing, canoeing and camping the entire time. By bringing veterans into the wilderness away from noises and stress we hope it will help them heal, recover and just relax.
