Lodging

Portage Haus 

The newest building at Adventurous Christians is the Portage Haus. This building will lodge families in separate rooms. This is a year-round cabin, and has a common meeting space. It is heated by an outdoor wood boiler for in-floor heat.

bunkhouse

Built in 2012, the Bunkhouse is a comfortable housing option at AC. This space will house one family and is heated by a propane heater, and is very close to our outhouses and main lodge.
