This is an extended canoe expedition in one of the wildest places in the lower 48 states. You will learn advanced canoe skills as well as wilderness ethics, backcountry navigation, backcountry cooking, and have opportunities for deep reflection in solitude. Other components will include leadership development, personal reflection, experiences in Creation, and the role of challenge as a discipleship tool for your ministry with your peers.
We strongly encourage families to attend Family Day at the end of their camper's session. Getting to the Northwoods of Wisconsin can be a small trek - let us help!

Who is this program for?
High School students, specifically rising 11-12 graders who are looking to be challenged through experiences in nature that require learning and applying outdoor skills.
What does the schedule for Voyageur look like?
The few days are spent in camp learning leadership development, outdoor technical skills, adventure challenge skills, and team development skills. The majority of the program will be spent in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area on an extended wilderness canoeing expedition. The last days will be spent back at camp for reflection and closure.
What is the goal of this program?
To build an authentic community that promotes spiritual growth on the journey to becoming more like Christ. Through time at HoneyRock and on the wilderness expedition the Voyageurs will experience life together in one of the most pristine areas of the Northwoods. You should expect to be pushed physically by the natural environment and the purposeful challenge built into the expedition. There is a high chance of seeing unique wildlife and the lack of light pollution provides unparalleled views of the night sky and maybe even a chance to see the Northern Lights!
How does Voyageur provide spiritual growth and faith formation?
Through daily reflection time, group devotions, Bible studies and disciplined reflection, the Voyageurs will seek to understand what it looks like to live a life that is yoked to Jesus. This training in walking by faith on a wilderness expedition practically demonstrates God's provision for us. This time set aside to be with God in Creation offers the ideal setting to practice faith and endurance through community. Our goal is that campers will emerge from this program better equipped to share God's love and deepen their personal relationship with him.
