Hello Henkemeyer crew and parents, welcome to our crew blog!

In no time, Base Camp will be buzzing with 12 crews preparing for one of the most unforgettable summers of their lives. Looking back on my first Voyageur trip, I can honestly say it was the most life-changing experience I have ever had. Voyageurs has helped me grow into the hard-working, strong, motivated individual I am today. I am so excited to now share that same opportunity with you. Since 1971, thousands of individuals have experienced the magic of Voyageurs (including some of you parents!), and girls, now it is your turn. Get excited!

A little about me —I am a senior at the University of St. Thomas double-majoring in general business management and environmental studies and am planning to work at a digital marketing consulting company post-graduation. I also keep busy on the track team, which helps me run off my extra energy in the Voyageur’s offseason, but with the weather warming up, I’m itching to get out to Base Camp.

Starting in May, we will be busy preparing for trail. This blog will be updated on a regular basis to keep parents and participants up to speed with all of the trip prep as it occurs. In addition to the blog, photos and a calendar of our crew meetings and events can also be accessed through the LVI website. Keep checking back here to see what we're up to!

I’m looking forward to meeting you all at the parent meeting this Sunday! Check the crew calendar for details. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that come up!
