Fall Foliage

What to Expect

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.   

Guided Tours

Take a tour around the Keweenaw Peninsula and learn invaluable historical insights into the Copper Country and its local attractions. 

Fantastic Food

Every day you'll enjoy tasty, home-style meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Mealtimes provide an excellent environment for building new relationships and fellowshipping with old friends. 

Great Bible Teaching

The teaching of the Word of God is a priority at Gitche Gumee. 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 includes 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, you'll be sure to find something in our area that will remind you of the great time you had at Gitche Gumee. Come eager and leave with a unique Copper Country memory.
