This summer, lead campers on a Journey!

Mentor a group of campers and teach them about something you love to do! Come up to camp this summer and lead one of our VLM Journeys!

Last summer we invited our week-long campers to "journey" with us: to spend time each week learning a lifelong skill from an experienced mentor, specialist, or guest artist. We are excited to continue this experience for another summer, and we need your help to offer exciting new activities! A Journey is a 2-hour block of time during the camp day for campers to focus on learning new skills such as canoeing, music, dance, theater, sports, arts, and more.

As a Journey mentor, you are welcome to spend the entire week with us as your schedule allows, but you can also be at camp only on the days you will be teaching and sharing. It is our hope to offer 4-6 different Journey options for campers to choose from each week!  You are able to determine how many campers are ideal for the activity you are leading, but our hope is that each Journey can accommodate at least 10 campers.  If your activity does not have a maximum number, we will need to work with you to maintain a 10:1 camp to adult ratio. You are welcome to invite your own assistants as needed, or to talk with our leadership staff to secure additional staff help. 

We can't wait to explore and learn with you! For more information about Journeys, contact Gretchen Bachman, Director of Operations, at (218)666-5465 or gretchen@vlmcamps.org.
