Abstract: 

Voyageur Environmental Center (VEC) is a full service environmental education center located in Minnetrista, near Mound, Minnesota offering over 45 different environmental curriculum choices. Our mission is to help students of all ages develop a sense of environmental awareness, appreciation and stewardship. VEC is situated on 110 acres of forested, rolling hills overlooking Little Long Lake, only 25 miles west of the Twin Cities.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities owns and operates Voyageur. Voyageur runs a residential summer camp for Club members. Camp Voyageur runs June through August. Club members also visit Voyageur on weekends as well as school release days.

Voyageur is also available as a resource for schools as well as a retreat and conference center. Both residential and day programming is available.
