The goals and objectives of the Discoverers is to; develop skills and become more comfortable in outdoor living. Develop and put into practice leadership and team building skills. Gain knowledge and skills in the environmental sciences and understand human connections to the environment.
Environmental education explores the science of ecosystems, plus relationships between people and their environment. We encourage participants to consider how their values and behaviors can influence and ultimately impact the world around them. Our curriculum and activities provide hands-on, memorable experiences that involve the whole person and address multiple learning styles.
Community is an important aspect as a Voyageur. Participants will spend the week focusing on the cultural and ecological history of northern Minnesota while developing teambuilding and leadership skills through hands-on games and activities. They practice these newly developed skills as they work together to paddle the voyageur canoe, learn how to use a GPS, explore the ecosystem of sawmill creek and go on an overnight camping trip to Raven Lake.
