Wildernessing with Camp Michawana
Specialty Week Wilderness Excursion
Enjoy the great outdoors through a week of learning the tips and tricks of rustic and backcountry camping! Along with all the activities you get to do at camp, you’ll get to spend two days hiking and backpacking in the Yankee Springs Recreational Area!
Campers will experience a couple days on each side of ‘typical” Summer Camp but leave camp for two nights mid-week. They will get to go to some chapels, swimtime, free time, etc but it will be limited.
We will be hiking 3-4 miles per day, and learning how to start a fire, Leave No Trace practices, traditional and fly fishing, and “over the fire” cooking. We will also be spiritually digging deeper with devotions, playing games, and spending good time together as a group.
What you will need:
- Good shoes to hike in
- Snacks that you like
- Appropriate dress for the weather
- Small Bible
- Mosquito Spray
- Fishing Pole if you want to fish
- Modest swimwear if you want to swim
- Sleeping bag
