  Doris Kolodji

Doris Kolodji's first Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness trip was in 1972. At a time when there weren't many girls in the canoe country, the Northern Lakes Girl Scouts showed Doris and hundreds of other girls how to paddle, portage, navigate, cook and sing their way through the wilderness. Doris guided canoe trips in the BWCAW for 13 summers and was instrumental in establishing a permanent base for the Girl Scout canoe trips outside of Ely, MN. Doris is a private guide for an Ely outfitter and continues to be involved as a trainer and a consultant for the Girl Scout canoe trips. Doris has trained hundreds of girls and women to be competent and confident in wilderness travel. She and Canoe Base guides bring a wealth of experience and their commitment to making the wilderness available to everyone.

If you've always wanted to pick up a canoe and portage like the "big boys," then this energetic, hands-on workshop is for you. Don't let the idea of picking up and carrying your own canoe be a barrier! For decades Northern Lakes Girl Scout Canoe Base has been training women and girls to travel through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Quetico Provincial Park. We specialize in teaching the novice. Learn tips and tricks for women and youth in the wilderness. There will be a team of canoe guides at the workshop to help you practice specific techniques to flip up and portage canoes.
