Adventure Camp 2020

This year’s Adventure Camp is an exciting trip down the Lower Wisconsin River, considered to be one of the best canoeing rivers in the Midwest. The last 92 miles of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway have been protected from further development, which encompasses nearly 80,000 acres of land on both sides of the river.

The Lower Wisconsin begins at Praire Du Sac, from prairie Du Sac, it freely flows through unglaciated hills of southwest Wisconsin, where it joins the Mississippi river at Prairie Du Chien and Wyalusing State Park.

The gracefull curves of the Lower Wisconsin River display starry nights, with wild beauty of nature left to its own devises for thousands of years. In constant flux, the” River of a thousand Isles” continuously sculpts its sandbars.Golden bluffs crop out of emerald hills and valleys that roll into rushing streams to the river. The river is a mecca for canoeists, campers and anglers who enjoy the scenic beauty of the valley as well as the challenge of paddling or sport of angling. This is going to be an Adventure of a life time, you don’t want to miss!

Adventure Camp 2019 Christian Living Class Notes

The theme for Adventure Camp this year was Mighty Men and Women. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide recordings of the Christian Living classes due to the remoteness of the camp from civilization (although that’s the whole point!), but below are the notes that the speakers used to present their classes. We hope you enjoy them!

Adventure Camp 2017 – Mt. Rainier National Park – FAQ, Itinerary, Packing List

DESCRIPTION:
Ascending to 14, 410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. As a stratovolcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S.A. spawning six major rivers. Towering over the heart of the Cascade Range, this mighty mountain is viewable from nearly every corner of the state. The park encompasses 236,381 acres including more than 300 lakes and more than 100 waterfalls! From deep old-growth forests in low valley bottoms to the frosty summit of the peak you will experience an array of terrain ranging. Here you will find wildflower meadows that John Muir called the most superb subalpine gardens that he’d ever encountered. After spending 5 days in the backcountry we’ll raft the White Salmon River which offers some of the best class III-IV rapids in the west (including rapids like S-turn, Top-Drop, The Flume, Bomber’s Drop and more)! The water is gin-clear and the rapids are big and numerous. This is an Adventure Trip you will not want to miss!
