Canoe Trips

Experience the Power of God in the breathtaking, rugged country of the BWCAW.

AC employs knowledgeable wilderness guides to ensure that your group has a safe and exciting trip. Our guides lead creative devotions to further your relationship with Jesus and to fulfill the AC mission of finding God in a wilderness setting. The guides model good creation stewardship and practice the Leave No Trace philosophy.

AC has outstanding equipment to help make your experience in the BWCAW very enjoyable.  We also have a creative trail menu that offers hearty, filling meals with delicious desserts.

Permits are required for the BWCAW; there can only be 9 campers per permit (8 per group plus our guide). We can successfully lead 5 trips at a time. Canoe trips are available from May through mid October with Monday arrivals. Our packages include all USFS camping and permit fees.

Trip Overview

AC has an outstanding canoe trip itinerary that leaves guests coming back again and again. We offer 4 & 5 night packages, with the first night in base and the rest on trail. All trips begin with arriving on Monday’s at AC.

Arrival to AC

Groups arrive Monday afternoon and are greeted by friendly Christian staff & meet your guide. The group goes through a series of rotations to prepare for your trips including hands on canoe orientation, learning the basics of traveling in the wilderness, personal packs and planning the route of the canoe trip. We have wonderful barbecue dinner, followed immediately with Last Word, a devotional led by staff. Once that is done, the group and staff will have fellowship in the lodge with hot drinks and goodies.

Departure on Trail

The next morning the group starts with First Word (morning devotion), eats a hearty calorie-packed breakfast, and then gets dropped off at the entry point to begin their journey.

On Trail

The group is challenged by nature and portages. The group will learn to work together to make traveling more efficient. The group will also learn navigational skills, how to identify indigenous plants and trees, and basic creation stewardship from the guide among other wisdom. The guide also leads First and Last Word to further your growth with Jesus. The group will help in preparing meals and setting up/taking down camp.

Back At Camp

After many days on trail, the group returns to camp. Here they will help clean up the equipment and then clean themselves in the sauna. After the sauna, the group comes together again in the lodge for a gut-filling banquet meal. The group then heads out back home.

Family Canoe Trips

Pack up the minivan and take the family to the woods! You won’t find a better deal. We offer 3 & 4 night packages, with the first night in base and the rest on trail. All trips begin with arriving on Mondays at AC. The schedule is the same as above. Click on the downloads in the sidebar to learn more about current rates and reservations.
