The Voyageur Program is an introduction to the Outpost Program. You’ll spend three days preparing for your trip at Camp Manito-wish YMCA: Getting to know your trip companions, planning your menus, packing food, gathering equipment, and learning and refreshing trail skills. All trips focus on the small-group experience, with four to five campers and one leader. Provisions are carried for the entire trip. You camp on a rustic site on Manito-wish grounds, complete with canvas wall tents and a fire ring. On the fourth day, you’ll embark on your nine-day Outpost trip, returning to Camp for the final two days. There are three Voyageur trip options; click on their links to learn more about them.
