Looking back you can see what has and has not changed at Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base and the Northern Tier program over the years. Many of the buildings have been replaced and new bases have opened but the program to this day fundamentally remains the same. One of the best ways to see this is by viewing the old material about the program.
Last year Chuck Rose (staff 1980-85, 87-89) sent in a few films used to promote the program. The films include "A Canoe Expedition" (1950) and "By Pack and Paddle" (1981) with manuscript written by Base friend Bob Cary
who has since passed away.Be sure to view the films on our Web site. It's
