Tinnerman is owned and operated by the Greater Cleveland Council (440).
Although I've never been there, many of my friends have, and can't say
enough about the place. I've seen videos and its Beautiful. The base is
accessed only by water taxi from a marina nearby.
Tinnerman is located on the French and Pickerel Rivers in Ontario, near
Georgian Bay. If you have a map of Ontario, follow route 400 North from
Torontountil it ends at Georgian Bay, then take provinicial route 69
north past Parry Sound, toward Sudbury. After you cross the French River
(about 2/3 of the wway from Parry Sound to Sudbury), there is a road on the
Left. The marina is at the end of that road, and the Base a boat ride
Once at the base, after a shakedown, and outfitting, the crews leave with a
guide immediately on their treks. A week later, they return, spend one
night at the base and leave. All supplies, except personal clothing,
bedding, etc, is provided, including mess kits, food, tents, etc.
Tinnerman usually fills up each summer. To reserve a crew slot, contact
the Greater Cleveland Council, 2241 Woodland Avenue, Cleveland Ohio 44115,
or call them at (216) 861-6060.
I don't have prices handy, but will try to get them on Monday.
