Here’s what’s happening up at Amnicon!
For questions & to RSVP…
Are you missing the richly authentic, spiritually rooted, community of Amnicon when you’re back home in the greater Twin Cities? If so, you are invited to come to the Amnicon Community Campfire Convo.
“Convo” referring to both conversation as well as convocation (a gathering of people).
Each month is an opportunity to connect with the broader Amnicon Community around a fire. Come and engage your spirit with genuine friendship, some of which were kindled in the north woods and some new, but all sustained around the fires of God’s grace and authentic community back home.
Save the date! Our annual fundraiser is a fun time to come together, celebrate the impact that our trips can have for our campers, and raise scholarships so that everyone can come to Amnicon regardless of what they can pay.
Last year, someone who came to this event told us, “This is the most fun I’ve ever had at a fundraiser!”
Let’s celebrate together. Let’s make a difference together.
CRAVING AN ADVENTURE?
UP FOR A CHALLENGE?
The Cloquet River is a remote waterway flowing down one side of a ridge that follows Lake Superior’s North Shore, and is the main tributary to the St Louis River. Join us for a journey of paddling stretches of quiet, placid water frequently broken by short, bouldery rapids.
It’s a big adventure. You’ll connect deeply with your fellow travelers, and will remember this experience for years to come.
Next Volunteer Work Weekend:
May 17-19, 2024
We love our volunteers! So many aspects of this vital ministry would not be possible without the help and dedication of our amazing volunteers.
Friday: Arrive in the afternoon or evening as you are able. We’ll have a few things to do, but mostly people are just getting settled in and catching up.
Saturday & Sunday: We’ll start the day with breakfast @ 8 am. After eating we’ll divide into teams to get projects done. It’s so satisfying to see a marked change, and a visible difference afterwards! Lunch is at noon, and dinner is at 5:30. After dinner we’ll hang out around the fire or hike down to the beach.
Food & Housing?
Provided free of charge by camp! Most people will be staying in the bunkrooms in the lodge, although the personal retreat cabins are available for those who need that. If you have a specific housing need, or a dietary restriction, please let us know when you RSVP!
TAKE A BREAK & FILL YOUR SOUL
Take a break from everyday life and discover just how rich the natural world can be. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is beautiful and soul-filling. On this long weekend, you’ll enjoy paddling your canoe on beautiful waterways, exploring pristine woodlands, and digging deep into life with your fellow travelers. There’s nothing else quite like it.
