Spend a Summer on the Gunflint Trail
We are looking for students or young adults to work at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters this summer. Please don’t quit reading if you aren’t in the category of student or young adult because we would like your help in finding some quality individuals to spend the summer with us.
The reason we like to hire young adults is because of our housing we provide for our crew. It’s one large building with a commons area and private rooms for sleeping. While there are most likely a number of older adults who would get along well with the younger ones it works best when the age range is similar.
Can you think of someone who would be a good fit for Voyageur? Our crew is usually comprised of people who love to spend time outside. They have hobbies like camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, swimming, running, nature, wildlife and reading. Many of our crew spend their days off paddling and camping in the Boundary Waters or Quetico Park.
While employed at Voyageur our crew has free personal use of our equipment. This is a great perk that all of our crew takes advantage of during the summer. Whether it’s a canoe, tent or fishing boat our crew is able to use our gear when it’s available.
In addition to the love of wilderness our Crew members must love to make other people happy. In order to do that we need hard-working, happy-go-lucky and enthusiastic crew members. We take pride in offering a one of a kind outfitting experience and we along with our crew must be willing to go the extra mile whether it means starting the day early, working through lunch or staying long after closing hours.
Our Crew performs a variety of tasks during the summer depending upon their interest and abilities. Everyone spends time cleaning whether it’s a bathhouse, bunkhouse, cabin or camping gear. Most people participate in the transportation of our guests via tow boat or vehicle. Each day is a new day with new tasks to be completed so it’s great to have flexible crew members.
We have crew members return to Voyageur year after year. We have past crew members tell us the time they spent at Voyageur was the best time of their life. If you know of someone who you think would be a good fit for us then please have them check out our website or give us a call at 218-388-2224. We would appreciate your help!
