Travel to the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota to visit Wolf Ridge Environmental Education Center. During this weeklong voyage we will ignite our adventurous side as we canoe, hike, rock climb, competitively orienteer and zip through the trees on the challenge courses. We'll investigate the Split Rock Lighthouse on the shores of Lake Superior and discover the shipwrecks that led to its construction. We'll maximize gravity as we go flying downhill on Alpine Coasters and take a step back in history to discover how Voyageurs made a living in the North Woods.
The trip is planned and led by a Community Ed Manager with ten years of trip leading experience and chaperoned by district teachers, administrators and staff. This trip is open to all students in grades 6-8, including those who attend public or parochial schools.Take a sneak peek at the Great Lakes Voyage in this 90-second video.
