Voyageur Fall 2019 (Youth Training)

Event Details

New for 2019

Canoe Training for Youth

The Voyageur Canoe Training Program is launching a new and exciting training program designed specifically for our scouting youth. The focus will be on training youth in proper canoeing techniques, trip planning, navigation principles, and the skills necessary for leading and executing a high adventure canoe trip with their units. The program will replicate the highly successful adult program that has been in operation in the Crossroads Council since the early 1960s. Participation will be open to all registered youth 14 years or older (13 years with recommendation by the youth’s unit leader).
