The Silverspring Voyageur Club is a year-round extra-curricular outdoor/canoe club for students in Grades 7 and 8.
It exists to provide unique educational, physical, social and emotional experiences for its participants who gain a new appreciation and respect for the outdoors. Being a member of the club is a privilege and students need to demonstrate self-discipline, physical fitness, a high self-motivation level and be committed to working towards achieving their personal goals as well as the goals of the club.
During hands-on practices, classroom sessions, and out of school experiences students work to acquire skills in canoeing, First Aid, water safety, camping, wilderness survival, winter camping, snow-shoeing, and cross-country skiing to name a few. Typically the Voyageur Club goes on several trips throughout the year including a winter camp and an overnight canoe trip. The highlight of the year is a multi-day northern trip where the students practice all of the skills they have learned throughout the year and experience something new by exploring new areas in Saskatchewan.
