Voice of the Rivers
Voice of the Rivers (VOR) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The relationships you develop and the lessons you learn – both practical and academic – will impact you for the rest of your life. This trip will challenge you to test your own boundaries and explore undiscovered capabilities and gifts while increasing your social and ecological awareness.
Even if you’ve never camped before, you’ll come away from this trip with knowledge and practical experience in paddling, camping, navigation, organization, and geography - not to mention safety, self-reliance, and personal responsibility. You don’t have to be a WLEE major to go on VOR!
Past Voice of the Rivers Expeditions include trips from the Brevard campus to New Orleans via the Tennessee, Ohio, and Mississippi Rivers, from Henderson County to Charleston, SC, from Cashiers, NC to Savannah, GA, and even three months in Patagonia, Argentina paddling to the Rio Santa Cruz, Rio Limay, and Rio Negro rivers.
This trip can satisfy some course requirements in any academic program – not to mention the personal satisfaction of completing a 3-week
Students participating in the trip will have numerous opportunities to take initiative, learn responsibility, lead the group, and teach lessons or skills to other group members.
