Ages 18 and up
This session has openings. Registration for this session will end on 5/23/2019.
Come join us for an expedition canoeing trip to the Boundary Waters canoe area, based out of our beloved Moon Beach. We will enjoy six days of early season canoeing, making a circle loop out of Seagull Outfitters, hopefully after the bugs peak and before the crowds show up. You will be outfitted with premium canoeing gear such as: Wenonah Kevlar ultra-light canoes, Bending Branches paddles, MSR tents, Thermarest pads and water-repellent goose down sleeping bags, Marmot Precip rain jacket and pants, and a full complement of dry bags and camping supplies from Cascade Designs. Our meals will consist of Backpackers Pantry along with honey-cured Broadbent Kentucky ham products, and other fresh ingredients. The focus of this 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!
