Voyageur Canoe Training Adult Scholarship
What is Voyageur Canoe Training? Why should an adult or youth take the training? The Voyageur Canoe Training program prepares adults to take the Voyageur program back to troop and other youth groups to prepare for and conduct safe canoe outings including High Adventure trips. The focus is teaching how to have FUN SAFELY while canoeing. More information about the Voyageur program can be found here
Don & Diane Claffey have established the Claffey Voyageur Scholarship Fund to provide ongoing support to this program. Scholarships in the amount of $50.00 will be awarded for each Voyageur adult training class starting with the Spring 2019 class. The applicant must be a currently registered adult leader of a unit in the Crossroads of America Council, BSA. To qualify for the scholarship they should have a financial need to attend adult Voyageur training.

The scholarship must be used within twelve months of the date the winner receives notification by the Voyageur Course Director, or the scholarship will be forfeited.
