  Emily Elkins



Emily Elkins is a 21 year old outdoor professional from Southern Wisconsin. In May, she will be graduating from Northern Michigan University with a major in Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management. The first time she recreated in the Boundary Waters was at a mere seven weeks old. She is now certified in Wilderness First Responder and Wildland Firefighting, continuing to pursue a career in guiding, and apart of Silver Paddles - an outdoor charitable organization founded by her father. This past summer, she was a photographer and guide for a company in South Carolina. Her days were full of new experiences as she took kids from the community on their own paddleboarding, rock climbing, mountainbiking, hiking, and backpacking adventures.

Her passion for canoeing and paddleboarding has always made her want to share the outdoors with others. Having been to the BWCA 19 times in her life, she is excited to share the knowledge she has learned along the way with you!



Presentations

 Growing Up in the Boundary Waters
(in-person)   Sylvania - main floor Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 
(available virtually) 
Join Emily in talking about what it is like to be a kid in the backcountry. Starting at a very young age, Emily's parents brought her family out into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Though her childhood was not like most, she argues that it was better. Experience what it is like to be unplugged from the world as someone who spent their childhood on the lake and campsite. From being a wilderness child, to now guiding kids, Emily knows the ins and outs of experiencing the outdoors at a young age.
