Voyageur

Boys Camp & Girls Camp

Voyageurs embark on five weeks of outdoor adventures and self-discovery in the best of scenic coastal Michigan.

As some of our older Four Trails campers, Voyageurs take on more defined leadership roles while on trail. With the help of their leaders, they’ll plan and facilitate Evening Reflections, cook meals for the group, and help lead the group each day as they plan their next destination. Along the way, they’ll learn to feel empowered by themselves and by the support of the mobile community they’re creating together.

At the end of their Voyageur experience, they’ll rejoin camp and be welcomed by the entire community as they cheer on their incredible accomplishment. Voyageurs conclude their experience by delivering community-wide insights they gathered during their journey and receiving their well-earned rugbies.


2022 Four Trails Details

The AYF is committed to offering challenging adventure-based programs that enable experiential learning. During the ongoing pandemic, our traditional Four Trails experience will be affected by supply chain limitations, transportation and travel restrictions, and the continued care of our campers’ health and safety. This season’s adventure trips  will involve hiking, canoeing, or kayaking, as well as service learning. As we continue to evaluate the global landscape, we will finalize specific destinations and itineraries and share this information in early 2022.

Summer 2022 registration will return to a first come, first served enrollment model (pending medical review). Registration for Miniwanca will take place in two parts:

Sunday, Nov. 7: Priority registration for existing camp families will open at 6 p.m. ET.

Monday, Nov. 15: Registration for new camp families will open at 8 a.m. ET.

“Voyageur was a great experience for her. She has wanted to do it since her first year at camp and it was all she expected it to be and more. She is so happy and confident. She knows she had a life experience many never get in a lifetime and she values every bit of it.”
