“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 Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. 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 and explore the Flambeau River by canoe! Expect to canoe 12-14 miles downriver each day through both flat water and rapids, with a couple of portages around larger rapids. Sleep in tents, prepare good meals around the campfire, participate in real life and faith discussions, and be immersed in the beauty and solitude of the Flambeau River State Forest. Feel free to bring a book or a fishing pole!
