What to Expect
Arrive in the afternoon to get settled in, enjoy our sandy beach on Lake Superior, and get to know the other humans on the trip! After a gourmet supper, we’ll gather around the campfire to share our stories and see how God’s story is still playing out in our lives.
Canoe Day! Depending on group size, interests, and weather safety…we’d love to take you paddling on Lake Superior in one of our 35′ Montreal Canoes! It’s a fantastic team-building experience where everyone is literally all in the same boat together! If the group is too small, or the weather is at all unsafe, then we’ll switch to paddling on a river in regular canoes, which is also a really cool experience.
Hiking and Goodbyes! We’ll have the chance to explore some of the hiking trails right here at Amnicon’s basecamp. You’ll get to see cool overlooks of Lake Superior, wander through beautiful forests, and discover hidden creeks. After lunch we’ll gather for a sentimental closing ceremony. You’ll be ready to head home around mid-afternoon.

What are the guides like?
Our wilderness guides are amazing, and you’ll love them. We send two highly trained individuals with each group. They will be at least 19 years old, and have been chosen because they have demonstrated an impressive level of maturity, care of creation, and a desire to connect with and serve our campers. We do our best to hire a diverse staff every year, and often hire staff from overseas! Amnicon does not discriminate in our hiring based on gender identity, sexual orientation, race, country of origin, or religious affiliation.
What do I need to bring?
What will the spiritual component of the trip be like?
We are a Lutheran camp, so there will be a spiritual side to this adventure! We’ll start and end every day with a brief devotion we like to call First & Last Words. First Word usually consists of 15-20 minutes of reading a short story or poem, and then discussing it as a a group. Last Word is a little bit longer, as we gather around the campfire in the evening. Everyone in the group will have the opportunity to share a story from their own life, and then hear and discuss a story from the Bible.
All spiritual elements of this trip are designed to bring people closer to each other and closer to God. Do you have doubts, struggles, questions? Good! This is a safe place to share those and talk about them openly. Have you walked with God for a long time? Good! Please share that too, and be ready to learn from the life experiences of the other women on the trip.
Where are we staying?
Adizokan Village is our seasonal retreat facility tucked back in the woods on a hill overlooking Lake Superior. You’ll be sleeping on a real bed in a sturdy canvas tent that’s built up on a wooden platform. There’s a picnic shelter and campfire ring for gathering spaces. There are outhouses at Adizokan Village, and flushing toilets and showers back at the main camp, which is just a 10-15 minute walk away.
