"Getting adjusted to college life seems trying at first, but the Voyage was a great way to get a head start on the firsts of college." - Canoeing Voyage participant, '09
If you are participating in a fall sport, or are a local student who can't make it on one of the other voyages, we welcome you to be a part of one of our early summer trips! Early in August we are offering a Backpacking and Surfing trip to accomodate for you busy summer schedules.
Wilderness Voyages connect you with classmates while enjoying some of the most incredible backcountry scenery the Northwest has to offer. Under the mentorship of trained student leaders, you will pitch your own tent, use a map and compass, get away from the distractions of the city, and cook hearty, well-earned backcountry meals. With each activity we teach, you will gain the technical skills necessary to travel safely, build confidence, and most importantly have a blast!
