Voyageur Spring 2022

Event Details

Canoe Training & Paddle Craft Safety for Adults


The Voyageur Canoe Training Program was established in the Crossroads of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America following the tragic death of a youth in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in the early 1960s. The youth’s parents and local scout leaders established this program to provide adults and youth training and education in canoe safety and trip planning. The program is designed to reduce the potential of that tragedy being repeated. Through the years the training has been limited to only registered adult scout leaders but is now open to any adult over 18.

Objective:  To prepare adults to take the Voyageur program back to the Troop and conduct safe canoe outings including High Adventure trips. To hold the older Scouts' interest and keep them active in the Scouting program. To encourage younger Scouts to earn rank advancement. To provide canoeing adventure for Venture Crews.

How can you obtain or renew the BSA Canoe Paddle Craft Safety Certification?

Adults that attend and pass the Voyageur Adult Leader Training program will obtain their BSA Paddle Craft Safety - Canoe certification. All certification requirements (except the swimmer test) are taught during the course, and certification testing is conducted. Kayaking certification is available for an additional charge and requires an additional day or coursework.

Adult leaders may renew their Paddle Craft Safety certification by attending the one day Paddle Craft Safety recertification day. Participants will be tested and need to pass the performance and written requirements to obtain recertification.
