High School

For Youth Entering Grades 9-12



Would you like to try an exciting outdoor adventure? Do you like biking, canoeing, camping and more? Then this “do it all” trip is for you! You’ll bike the scenic Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail, canoe on the breathtakingly beautiful Kickapoo River, and camp out with your friends along the way. Your travel adventures will also include fun camp activities such as games, campfires, Bible study, team building and more! Come with your youth group, a friend, or by yourself and make friends along the way!

This program is also great for Confirmation groups who want to bond in a new way. If the weeks offered on the schedule don’t work for your Confirmation group, please call. We can possibly find another week—or a custom program—for your community/youth group.

We provide camping gear, food, youth ministry staff, and activities. Please bring your helmet and a bike in good working order. (Contact the camp office in advance if you do not own a bicycle; we can possibly help to find a working bike that fits you, if we know ahead of time.) Campers entering this program should be able to ride at least 10 miles a day at a steady pace.

Cost: $695 (Tier 1), $495 (Tier 2), or $395 (Tier 3)

Dates: June 25-30
