Custom Treks Tailored to You
On these treks you are not alone. Your Voyageur will guide your unit throughout your journey. A Voyageur is a trained guide by BSA and New York State standards. You will first meet your Voyageur the day you get to camp and he will work with you to assess your level of ability for your trek. He will be there to teach you about hiking and canoeing and low impact camping. He will then join you and stay with you throughout your trek. Upon return from your adventure, you will have the opportunity to rock climb and water ski.
A Typical Floodwood Week
After finishing their camp check-in, groups are given a bit of time to continue getting to know their Voyageurs and begin planning for their week. Voyageurs are responsible for doing a gear shakedown with each crew in order to help aide the scouts in picking the appropriate gear and making sure each group has the necessary items to have a safe and effective trek!
A flag ceremony is held at 6pm and immediate followed by a camp wide barbecue. After dinner, we hold a leader’s meeting to discuss logistics for the week and then everyone is dismissed back to their campsites to relax and take care of any last minute arrangements necessary for the week.
