Fall Foliage


SEP. 20-24 | SEP. 27-OCT. 1

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.

Kurt Loosenort

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 the next generations.

His series is titled, "Sharing Our Faith Treasures with Our Next Generations." This series will strive to answer these common questions: "Why are so many of those we love becoming casualties to our culture?" "How can we cultivate our own faith, clarity, transformation, and hope?" "How can we connect with our next generations, learning to listen to them and understand them?" "How do we share these treasures so that their lives are changed?"
