ADULT Canoe Trips

AC specializes in guided Canoe trips and Wilderness experiences that encourage campers to take a next step in Christian faith.

Life today is busy.  We find ourselves without margin both socially, in work and family life.  Our interior lives wish for space to be without pressure – to rejuvenate.  If you are looking for a chance to learn and experience something new that takes you out of the normal spaces of your everyday, come join us for a few days of learning, physical adventure and rest.  Together we will explore how to live life in a balance of opposing needs. Along with traveling through creation we will put aside time to discuss God’s character and the love, peace and joy He desires for us. We will teach or refresh any skills needed for this outing.  No previous experience necessary.

Once you arrive at AC you will meet your trail guide who will be with you through your whole adventure. Your guide will help you learn the skills and use the gear needed to travel in the backcountry.  AC Guides also facilitate and help your group process the spiritual and community aspects of the experience. This summer, we are ensuring a safe and healthy canoe trip experience.

These trips are designed for individuals or small groups of friends (2-4). If you are interested in a Group Canoe Trip, click here for more details.

Please note: our camp operates within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in the Superior National Forest.  As a BWCAW Cooperator, this business is an equal opportunity service provider.

Trip Overview

AC trip itineraries have time set aside for learning skills, bible study and enjoying time in God’s creation. These trips start with one night at camp and then 3 nights out in the BWCAW. 

Arrival to AC

Individuals arrive at camp in the afternoon and are met by their trail guide. The group goes through orientation including an overview of canoeing skills, packing gear, and learning Leave No Trace wilderness ethics. After dinner there is time for bonding and preparing before bed.

Depart for the Trail 

The next morning, after breakfast, groups get dropped off at their BWCA entry point to begin their journey.

On Trail

On a normal day on trail groups will cover 6-12 miles, cross multiple lakes and portages and prepare meals over the fire before curling up in their tent to go to bed. Throughout the day there will be opportunities to encounter challenges, practice stewardship of God’s creation and learn wilderness skills. Canoe groups work as a team to lift canoes, carry packs, set up tents, collect firewood, cook food, wash dishes and accomplish other activities needed to live outdoors. Each day your trail guide will lead devotions and quiet time will be set aside for Bible reading and journaling.

Back At Camp

At the end of a trip, groups will be picked up and return  to camp. Groups will clean up equipment, take a sauna, and eat a celebratory meal before heading home.
