Come join us for an expedition backpacking trip to Isle Royal based out of our beloved Moon Beach. We will enjoy five days of springtime hiking on the Island before the crowds and bugs show up, making a 30-40 mile loop out of Rock Harbor and over the Greenstone Ridge. You will be outfitted with premium gear including: Osprey backpacks, Leki trekking poles, waterproof breathable rain jackets and pants, MSR tents, Thermarest pads and down sleeping bags, and other quality camping products from Cascade Designs. Our meals will consist of nutritious and easy to prepare Backpackers Pantry cuisine. The focus of group experience will be between learning back-country skills, so you will be more prepared to adventure on your own, making a deeper spiritual connection with God in nature, and growing in fellowship and fun with other group members. Your guide and trip director, Pastor Nick Hatch, serves First Congregational Church in Appleton and is a Wilderness First Responder an certified Outdoor Educator. Join Nick and your fellow backpackers on the trip of a lifetime!
