Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base History Documents

The Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base is a living legacy, and a tribute to those who dared to dream a dream of High Adventure.

Below you can get a glimpse of the imagination, ingenuity, and hard work that went into crafting the Northern Tier program. You will find letters and articles by the founders, directors, and staff. We hope that by spending some time you might gain insight as to how the canoe base was born and how it has affected the lives of all who have paddled out from her shores.
