Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities (BGCTC) is excited to offer safe, fun, enriching experiences to young people, once again, this summer at Voyageur Environmental Center in Mound, Minnesota. Twin Cities kids and teens look forward to spending time at Voyageur each summer where they can build new friendships, learn new outdoor skills, experience the wonders of nature, and make lifelong memories.
Now more than ever, the Clubs understand the importance of peer- to-peer reconnection and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) through play.
We hope you will join us in supporting Voyageur’s critical work to provide an impactful, high quality outdoor experience by donating to Spirit of Voyageur, running through July 15, 2022!
This year at Voyageur, youth will be able to connect with each other through fun and educational outdoor activities. BGCTC’s goal is to empower young people to be in charge of their learning through hands on opportunities. The safe space for healing that Voyageur offers is essential as youth and communities we serve continue to experience increased racial trauma, inequities, and health and wellness barriers. Additionally, Voyageur staff have been planning an increased number of STEM activities for youth to enjoy the natural world around them while developing problem solving, observation, engineering skills, and more.
Voyageur has been cherished by generations of Club members and families, and we need your help now, more than ever, to ensure its sustainability. Your donation to Spirit of Voyageur TODAY will support these critical needs:
- $25: 1 STEM water quality test kit
- $50: 1 pair of snowshoes
