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 considerations…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 Day! After an amazing breakfast, we’ll drive to one of the many state parks in the area. Lunch will be served picnic style and there will be plenty of time to explore the park and enjoy beautiful views and the many waterfalls nearby. After a delicious dinner, we’ll watch the sun set over Lake Superior while we sit beside a campfire.
We’ll have a little bit of time after breakfast for one last hike around Camp Amnicon’s gorgeous lakefront and riverside before saying goodbye to our fellow adventurers and heading home.
frequently asked questions
What COVID precautions are you taking?
Amnicon Adventures are remarkably amenable to COVID precautions. You won’t interact with anyone outside your group, all group activities will take place outdoors, and we’ll mask up anytime we can’t physically distance… and there’s usually plenty of room to physically distance. The American Camps Association (our accrediting org) did a big survey in 2020 and found that camps who followed all of the above precautions had ZERO instances of COVID transmission. COVID can’t stop us from having fun, making memories, or connecting with God, friends, and nature.
There are a few other precautionary measures we’re taking as well. If you’re interested, click here to read our full COVID response policies.

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.
