JMC Outings ….. 2019 Northwoods Canoe Outings

Take time to experience the outdoors with a trained outings leader. The JMC Outings program will lead a paddling trip into the International Boundary Waters Wilderness area of Wabakimi Provincial Park, from July 14-20.

There will also be a women’s paddling trip to the Namekagon and St. Croix Rivers which is part of the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway in Northern WI, September 20-22.

Outings fees include all group supplies, equipment, food and lodging - including park permits and taxes.  Not included are travel and associated costs to/from the official gathering point for starting/ending the outing, personal fishing licenses/permits and passports (if required). You supply your personal camping gear and clothing.  Contact outings leaders for additional information about registration – including where to send your deposit to reserve your spot.

All outing fees allow participants to offer support for the John Muir Chapter Outings Program and its ability to continue offering these outings annually. Additional contributions to this fund are always welcome. 

Find out more and register at   as we plan and post new opportunities. Look into all the offerings from the River Touring Section or any of the group outing offerings as well. Get out, explore, enjoy and help protect the outdoors by being an outdoor enthusiast!! 

Even if a trip is full and you get on a waiting list, there is a very good chance that you will get to attend because there are always cancellations as people's plans change.


Liability Waiver & Carpooling

While no experience is required, all participants must complete a medical history and canoe experience form, and then be approved by their outing leader before participating on any outing. Liability insurance coverage provided by Sierra Club for all participants. All forms are available for viewing by any prospective participant upon request.

In the interests of facilitating logistics for some outings, it is customary that participants make carpooling arrangements to the outing's starting point. Sierra Club outings insurance does not cover the time prior to, or following, the outing when crew may still travel together. Therefore, carpooling, ride sharing or similar activities are a private arrangement made among participants and not part of the offering.
