VOYAGER INSTITUTE

Program Overview:

The ten-day Voyager Institute located at Camp Allen in Navasota, TX brings together young American, Israeli, and Palestinian teens ages 14-15 years old for foundational leadership development and learning basic peacebuilding knowledge and skills.

Voyager participants have the opportunity to engage in group team-building and self awareness and identity training through a variety of educational activities and approaches.  In addition to group dialogue, workshops, service-projects, and interfaith learning, teens enjoy outdoor activities such as high and low-ropes challenge courses, swimming and horseback riding.
