Red Wolf Voyageurs Program
Red Wolf Voyageurs Program mixes camping, canoeing and leadership training for the ultimate backcountry adventure. Splitting their time between Red Wolf camp and a multi-day canoe trip, Voyageurs develop competencies in canoeing, navigation and map reading, portaging, water safety and rescue, campsite setup and care, and general outdoor skills. They may also be introduced to or build upon other wilderness skills (eg. wildlife tracking, foraging for food, shelter building), and have the opportunity to mentor younger campers.
By building advanced wilderness skills, taking measured risks, and learning from their mistakes, teens build resilience and confidence in their own abilities. They leave ready to tackle whatever challenges come their way – whether it’s a rain storm, a difficult class at school, or a tricky social situation.
For more information, check out our RED WOLF VOYAGEURS 2022 CAREGIVER HANDBOOK. (Details may change in 2023, but we hope this gives families further insight into the program.)
