Wilderness Canoe Trip 

Are You Hungry For Adventure And Ready To Meet God in His Creation?

In 5 nights out on trail we hope that you will be challenged, learn wilderness skills and grow in your enjoyment of nature.  Most importantly we hope you grow in your relationship with Christ. Being immersed in God’s creation gives a special opportunity for challenge and reflection that can lead to personal and spiritual growth. AC guides will act as wilderness instructor and camp counselor to create a paddle group community that practices teamwork and supports one another through the challenges and adventures that arise while in the wilderness.  

To register for this canoe trip, email Lina at the AC Office.

Trip Overview

AC trip itineraries have time devoted to learning skills, Bible study and enjoying time in God’s creation. Your trip will start with one night in base, then 5 nights on trail in the BWCAW before returning to camp. 

Arriving at AC

Campers can be dropped off at AC between 1 and 3 in the afternoon on Sunday. After families have left, campers will spend the rest of the day getting to know their group mates, going through canoe orientation and packing personal gear. 

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

On Saturday, 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 and time to debrief and discuss what they learned on their trip. Campers will be picked up by their families between 1 and 3 in the afternoon on Saturday.
