ADVENTURES FOR ADULTS!

We’re offering a variety of adventures – one day canoe trips near the Twin Cities metro area, weekend long glamping adventures, wilderness skills trainings, and more!  These are fun experiences, designed to bring people together in a safe and meaningful way. Don’t miss out! Sign up today!

Grownups Glamping

August 19-22

$400/person

Enjoy big adventure without compromising on style! We’ll dig deep into life together and enjoy all the wilderness has to offer, while also savoring gourmet food and sleeping in real beds! It’s the best of everything, and we’d love to have you join us! 

What to Expect

Thursday (Aug 19)
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.

Friday (Aug 20)
Canoe Day! If group size & weather permit, we’ll get to paddle one of our impressive, 35′ Montreal Canoes on Lake Superior in the Apostle Islands. You’ll feel close to your adventure-mates, surrounded by breath-taking beauty as you all literally paddle in the same boat together! After a picnic lunch on one of the islands, we’ll head back to Amnicon for an evening of refreshments and reflections around the fire.

Saturday (Aug 21)
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.

Sunday (Aug 22)
We’ll have a little bit of time after breakfast for one last hike around Amnicon’s gorgeous lakefront and riverside before saying goodbye to our fellow adventurers and heading home. By the end of the weekend, your soul will be filled with Grace and nature, and you’ll go home with a sense of community and connection. 

frequently asked questions

What COVID precautions are you taking?

Amnicon Adventures are remarkably amenable to COVID precautions. 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. 

Who can come on a Glamping trip?

Participants must

  • Be at least 21 years of age on the first day of the trip,
  • Be able to walk half a mile over uneven terrain without assistance, and
  • Be able to lift and carry 30 pounds over a short distance.

Participants with chronic medical conditions must

  • Be able to manage their own care without assistance,
  • Bring all their own medications and supplies for managing their condition,
  • Have experience managing their condition during periods of increased stress and physical activity, and
  • Have not had any medical emergiencies within the last year.

Sleeping accommodations are not handicap accessible. If you have questions about whether this trip is right for you, please don’t hestitate to contact us! Call 715-364-2602, email info@amnicon.org, or click the button below.

What do I need to bring?
You’ll get a detailed packing list before you come, but essentially you’re just responsible for your own clothes & sleeping bag. Amnicon provides all the food, gear, and guides you’ll need to have a fantastic experience.

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 humans 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.
