“Wilderness to the people of America is a spiritual necessity, an antidote to the high pressure of modern life, a means of regaining serenity and equilibrium.” – Sigurd F. Olson


Venture Out Women’s Backpack: Join a group of adventurous women hiking along cliffs, waterfalls, and the Lake Superior shore (4-8 miles per day including some rigorous up and down hills) of the Porcupine Mountains. Each participant will carry a pack (approximately 40-50 pounds), help set up camp each night, enjoy meals cooked over a camp stove or fire, and participate in daily devotional times while viewing the Lake Superior sunset. Lots of chatter, laughter, and sharing (Maximum group size is 10, plus 2 CPBC staff).

Venture Out Men’s Canoe: Get off the beaten path with a group of adventurous men exploring Sylvania Wilderness by canoe. Expect 5-10 miles of canoeing per day with 1-2 portages of up to 240 rods. Participants will help carry gear and canoes through the wilderness, sharing in meals each night around a campfire, and participating in a Bible study together. Fellowship, wilderness, and adventure awaits! Feel free to bring fishing tackle, a book, and a spirit of adventure! (Maximum group size is 8, plus 2 CPBC staff)
