Session Descriptions

2-Week Sessions

First-Time Campers Only

Camp Voyageur offers two-week introductory sessions for young, first-time campers. A two-week session gives boys a taste of camp life, the comradery, and adventure found only in these north woods. At base camp, rookie boys learn the routine, playing sports and literally “get their feet wet” on a four-day Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) canoe trip. We hope you’ll “Catch the Spirit” and return next year for four weeks.

4-Week Sessions

Pick from our two, 4-week sessions

A boy’s confidence soars and friendships flourish over a four-week 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. Kids return each year to visit increasingly remote areas on longer wilderness trips.

8-Week Session

A Summer Full of Friends and Adventure

The best value in every sense of the word, eight weeks unplugged and away from home rejuvenates the soul. “Catch the Voyageur Spirit,” as physical fitness becomes routine and camping trips dig deeper into the backcountry unleashing self-discovery. In eight weeks at Voyageur, strength and confidence come naturally as boys become more responsible to their group and seek opportunities to lead friends along the path. Camp’s simple, physical lifestyle whittles one down to the essence of their character. Kids get fit, become comfortable on stage, and learn valuable lifelong skills by overcoming new challenges. Returning eight-week teens can spend nearly half their time on the trail as the wilderness inspires a love of adventure and a lifelong appreciation for nature.

Girls Trips (10 Days)

Explore the Northwoods

In June, Camp Voyageur offers canoe trips for girls ages 12-18. For novice or experienced campers, girls spend a few days in camp training for their trip and then head out for seven days on the trail. While the Boundary Waters offers many canoe routes, older veterans may venture into the Quetico or hike Isle Royale National Park.

Pay in Full Discount

Pay in full to SAVE $400 on our 8-week session, $200 on the 4-week sessions or $75 on a 2-week session. Girls trips save $50 by paying in full up front.
