Come join us for an intergenerational canoeing expedition to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area based out of our beloved Moon Beach. We will enjoy five days of canoeing, making a circle loop out of Seagull Outfitters. 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.

We will be starting at Moon Beach for an afternoon of learning about gear, getting to know one another, packing, and even enjoying a paddle on the lake. On Sunday morning we will have breakfast, pack up, and meet at Seagull Outfitters by dinner that same day. On Monday we depart for 5 days of canoeing in the BWCA in one fo the most beautiful and remote sections of this gem of a wilderness.
