Boundary Waters Canoe Trip
Why do we do the BWCA?
The First Congregational UCC of Lowell finds this opportunity for our young people to experience this challenging journey creates lifelong personal & team growth. Their ability to travel with great physical exertion, without technology, & in small teams proves self-confidence in ways deeper than many youth could dream. Finally, the earth, created by God, is a beautiful place & we at the First Congregational Church of Lowell feel a great sense of responsibility in protecting it. This experience allows youth to see a land that’s been virtually untouched by humans & gain an understanding of how much humans have shaped the land we regularly see.
