What is Voyager camp like?
Voyager Camp is a co-ed option for campers entering 10th grade through students just graduating from high school. This eleven-day camp provides increased physical and spiritual challenges and culminates with an opportunity to give back and learn by serving as a junior counselor at Camp Roger. Voyager trips will be led by both male and female staff members.
Campers attending Session 5 for Voyagers will spend five days backpacking in the Porcupine Mountains, and campers attending Session 7 for Voyagers will backpack for five days in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. After backpacking the Voyagers camp for three days on Grand Island, with one of those days being a mountain bike adventure around the island.
Being a junior counselor:
When the Voyagers return to Camp Roger, they participate in a mini staff orientation class. Their Voyager counselors teach them some basics about being a camp counselor and each Voyager is then assigned to assist two summer camp counselors in a cabin for the following three day session. This session is for our younger campers and the Voyagers get to experience what it is like to be a camp counselor. The summer camp counselors, while providing great supervision for these younger campers, are also serving as role models for the Voyagers. It provides them with a great opportunity to grow spiritually and to become more independent.
