Each fall, Gitche Gumee Bible Camp is proud to host two separate five-day retreats for adults. We provide engaging and highly trained teachers to speak during our daily Bible meetings.  This will truly be a week for you to come, rest, and refresh yourself in the Lord.   

What To Expect:

Guided Tours

Take a tour around some of the Keweenaw Peninsula's most coveted gems.  We provide invaluable historical insights into the Copper Country and individual sites visited on our many tour options.  Enjoy the beauty and history of the U.P., and we'll do the driving!


Fantastic Food

Everyday you'll be greeted with tasty home-style meals.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all made fresh daily with the kind of love you find at home.  Meal times provide an excellent environment for building new relationships and fellowshipping with old friends. 


Great Bible Teaching

At Gitche Gumee Bible Camp, we put the teaching of the Word of God as priority.  We make no exceptions with our speakers.  Each week we have a highly trained and exciting speaker planned to bring you the truth of God's Word both morning and evening.  


Fun Fellowship

Every evening we have scheduled times for fellowship.  We understand the need for community in the Body of Christ and want to provide times for relationships to be built and harbored.  


One of a Kind Shopping

From locally roasted coffee, to handcrafted art, Lake Superior agates, and unique U.P. gifts, you'll be sure to find something in our area that will remind you of the great time you had at Senior Saints.  Come eager and leave with a unique Copper Country memory.

Sept. 20-24

Discovering treasure and adventure... God has worked through Kurt to bring these to many kinds of people: College students, athletes, fraternities, businessmen, outdoorsmen, internationals, church leaders, youth, married couples, and many more. People's lives are deeply touched by his blend of creation and God's word, personal and practical examples, hurting and hoping  through struggles, rescue from dangers. His greatest hope: that you will be transformed and more able to transfer treasures to next generations.

His series is titled, "Have a Blast While You Last, Bringing Adventure Back to Life"
