Voyageur Orienteering

Voyageur OrienteeringWhy not try Orienteering with a Voyageur twist? After students have gained an understanding of map reading, they dress up as Voyageurs, complete with shirts, sash and a hat. Using an authentic looking parchment map, students must find a series of wooden boxes hidden on our range area. Each box contains a different type of fur that was used in the fur trade over 150 years ago (fox, lynx, coyote, beaver and fisher). This program is a wonderful way to inspire interest in the Voyageurs and the fur trade.
