Wind River Range: Westward Trip, July 20 – August 2

Venture Out, Aug. 4 – 7, Pictured Rocks National Shoreline

It was an intrepid group of women, 11 and 1/2 in all, who took to the trails and waters of Lake Superior for this summer’s adventure.  The group gelled together and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. It was awesome to have times of laughter and stories but also moments of deep discussion and sharing about faith issues. Devotions were led by Megan (our mother to be) as well as any member who wanted to tell what God was doing in her life. Each person dedicated this trip to people in their lives who needed prayer.  New to this year was a kayaking experience along the sandstone cliffs of Pictured Rocks. Using tandem kayaks,  fortunately the day was calm and waves were minimal. Paddling through rock arches and along magnificent cliffs was a unique activity for all. A total of 12 miles was hiked and one thrilling sunset over Superior was witnessed.  Thanks to all who came. It was quite the trip!

Flambeau River Canoe Trip June 29- July 5, 2014

We spent the week floating down the Flambeau River in Wisconsin. The best parts of our week were swimming down the river next to our canoes, eating lunch on the river with each other as we floated down the river, and eating delicious meals and hanging out around campfires every night. We saw God in the river, in the rain, and in each other.

Adventures In Leadership 2014

June 22 – June 29

14 Central Conference high school students, 5 Central Conference youth workers, and CPBC staff joined together for the week long Adventures in Leadership. One full day was spent at camp with leadership training, group initiatives, personality profiles, trip preparation, and times of worship. The next three days the group was split into two, and headed out backpacking the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore where each student led their group for a half day, helping prepare meals, make group decisions and lead a devotional “first or last word.” The trip wrapped up with a sea kayaking adventure on Lake Superior before returning to camp.

Men’s Trout Fishing Trip, July 7-10

“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”
– Henry David Thoreau

A group of adventurous men joined Covenant Point staff to retreat from everyday life, and spend time on the Bois Brule River fishing for trout. The three days were spent in community as well as some solitude and silence in the unspoiled realms of Northern Wisconsin’s Brule River State Forest. The theme of the message was “awakening” to God in your life. Highlights of the trip were sharing good meals around a campfire, visiting a trout hatchery, spending days on the river, from the headwaters to Lake Superior, slowing down from the pace of everyday life, and even catching some trout.
