Challenge Promotes Growth

Good things happen when a boy leaves home for camp. He gains independence and finds his own voice. Camp Voyageur fills a summer with sports, adventure, and exploring the Boundary Waters with friends.

Community Builds Character

Boys live together in small cabins, take care of their own gear, and share chores. Sports and activities emphasize cooperation and character. On wilderness trips boys contribute to the good of the group by “pulling their own weight”.

What is Camp Voyageur?

A boy’s confidence soars and friendships flourish over a four-week overnight session at Camp Voyageur. Our creative and energetic staff lead favorite activities like the Gong Show, Cardboard Boat Regatta, W.ELK Radio Show, and Olympics.

While in camp, boys learn the daily routine of inspection, activities, meals, and free swim. Kids have time to enjoy archery, play pickleball, sail, paddleboard, fish, create in the Craft Shop, and practice their instruments. Mess Hall plaques showcase the names of boys catching the biggest fish and swimming to nearby islands. Kids can enjoy day fishing trips, touring the Soudan Iron Mines that helped build America, petting the local sled dogs at Wintergreen, visiting Ely’s International Wolf Center, and the North American Bear Center.

Voyageur’s in-camp program seasons boys for progressively longer canoe trips into the adjacent million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Backcountry travel hones camping skills and a few teens become Bushwhacker and Big Man leaders on canoe trips. For many, hiking the rugged North Shore of Lake Superior is a popular option. Teens return each year to visit increasingly remote areas on longer wilderness trips.
