Porcupine Mountains Backpacking Trip July 13-19, 2014

We hiked through the Porcupine Mountains for a week with 8 campers. We enjoyed eating lunch next to waterfalls and swimming in lake Superior. Another highlight was skipping rocks on the lake and watching the sunset. We had great weather and a fun time on trail together.

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.

CPBC Men’s Winter Expedition 2014


January 10-12, 2014, eight men ventured to the Porcupine Mountains, backpacking with cross country skis to a small rustic cabin in the woods. In the two days at the cabin, they enjoyed skiing and snowshoeing, playing card games,  having good conversations, sharing meals cooked over the woodstove, and devotional times with the theme of “Discovering True North: Self-awareness, discovery, and creating the new normal” led by Kevin Johnson. The exceptional snow and good group of men made for a great trip.

Venture Out Women’s Back Pack Trip 2013

Away we went on an 18 mile walk in the woods and along the waters of Lake Superior at majestic and scenic Pictured Rocks National Shoreline near Munising, MI. This year six women participated–yearly returnees were Julie Bladel and Linda Johnson, second time attender, Sarah Hillabrand,  first timer, Joan Fisher, and leaders from Point, Jane Frasier and Megan Nyberg. Despite rain trying to dampen the spirits at various times and cold nights which reduced the bug population, everyone enjoyed the time together and delighted in being a part of this back country area. Meeting a variety of folks on the trail added to the adventure–even the group we had to yell at one night for making too much noise after midnight.  Each person especially commented on the devotional times with Megan who shared thoughts on spiritual disciplines. The discussion and prayer time that followed was a blessing as was the time of reflection on the trail or at each night’s camp site.The purpose of Venture Out is to experience time away with a group of women and leave behind the clutter of our daily lives. We all did just that!

First Ever Men’s Winter Ski Expedition

This past weekend seven men ventured to the porcupine mountains for a three day/two night expedition into the backcountry to stay at a rustic log cabin in the woods.  Below are reflections of men who went on the trip and pictures of the beautiful nature we encountered throughout the weekend.

“The men’s winter expedition was a great experience!  It was a good blend of exercise, fellowship, spiritual reflection and sharing, and A LOT of fun.  We even got a chance to listen to the Packer game (boohoo).  It was awesome to be able to enjoy God’s creation and spend time “roughing it” in a nice cabin in the mountains with a great small group of guys.  We were able to get to know each other much better and grow in the Lord too.  Dustin, Colby, and Paul led and fed us well and overall did a super job!  I hope I can do it again next year. ” – Ed Lindwall

“I had a great time with a bunch of honest to god good guys. Regardless of everyone’s personality and background we all meshed together for a stress free male get together.  I’ll be first in line to sign up next winter.” – Lloyd Jacobson



Staff/Alumni Porcupine Mountains Ski Trip

A beautiful weekend skiing in the Porcupine Mountains off Lake Superior was the perfect way for former and current staff to connect in an intimate setting.  Dustin, Covenant Point’s outdoor ministry director, led  the trip with our intern Johanna and brought along former staffers Trevor Mayo and Claire Nelson.  Throughout the weekend they visited vistas, ate good food cooked on the woodburning stove, had great chapel times of sharing and worshipping, and caught up on life.

Dustin and Colby head out this Friday for the first Men’s Winter Expedition.  There is still one open space, so sign up if you are interested!

Yurt Construction is Finished!

Here is a video of our recent construction of our back forty Yurts.  We are still working on fully winterizing them with wood stoves, and building bunk beds to accomodate guests, and this construction marks an exciting step forward in our Wilderness Ministry.

The yurts will resource our trips program by providing new housing for briefing and debriefing with groups before and after a trip. Having additional space like this will allow us to: 1) serve new groups in a set-apart area while other housing at camp is full (ie, while Purdue University is here), 2) run simultaneous trips during the summer, whereas in the past we’ve run one trip at a time, and 3) provide a new experience of camp for interested groups – like family campers, scouts, youth groups, etc. To learn more about what a Yurt is, visit

We have many opportunities to get out into God’s Creation through our Trips program.  Learn more about Trips here.
