At Voyageur we spend most of our days outdoors, but when the rain moves in we’ll pull out playing cards to enjoy with friends in the cabins, start up a game of four-square or ping-pong in the Rec Hall, or make a rainy dash to the Mess Hall for some hot cocoa and board games.

In recent years, Settlers of Catan, Risk and Battleship have kept campers engaged over rest period. Some campers bring Pokemon and Magic, the Gathering, cards for cabin duels and downtime on wilderness trips. Everyone learns a few favorite card games to play in the tent.
