Site and Facilities – Draft

Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula just three miles north of the Wisconsin border, Covenant Point is 140 miles northwest of Green Bay, and 340 miles north of Chicago.  Adjacent to thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest, Covenant Point is close enough to make a weekend trip worthwhile, and far enough to be a truly set-apart wilderness experience.

The mainland area is a thirteen acre peninsula on beautiful Hagerman Lake – a spring-fed, 585 acre lake that we enjoy year-round. Our “Back 40” wilderness area is largely undeveloped, but is home to our high and low ropes courses, and our Nature Center. Our eight-acre Island sits one mile off our mainland shore, (yes, it’s truly an island), and serves as a truly unique wilderness setting for youth camps.

Tabernacle
