Hello and welcome to the experience of a lifetime – Les Voyageurs expeditions summer 2017! In just a few short weeks, base camp will be filled with the bustle of 12 crews preparing for one of the most memorable summers of their lives. Voyageurs holds a special place in my heart as the program that taught me to be confident, gave me the freedom to test my limits, and helped me develop as a leader. I am so excited as a guide to be able to provide you all with that same opportunity!


Currently I am a sophomore attending the University of Minnesota majoring in biology and minoring in environmental sciences. I spend my time juggling classes, research, a few odd volunteer positions, and rock climbing. However, as the weather warms up I’ve been itching to get outside! This will be my second summer guiding and I’ve looked forward to this all year!


This blog will be updated regularly to keep parents and participants up to date on all of our trip preparations as well as with a few fun photos. In addition to the blog and photos, a calendar of our crew meetings and events will also be accessible through the LVI website. This is a great way to keep up with our crew’s schedule, so please check this often!


I’m currently working on the schedule for this summer, so check back soon for calendar dates for all of our pretrip meetings! Please feel free to contact me with any questions that come up!
