NEW for 2014
Our Adventure Camp is an opportunity for our families with children 12 and older to participate in a unique, outdoor-based camping experience at Gitchee Gumee Bible Camp. Although you will be sleeping in furnished cabins, our days will be spent exploring the great outdoors.

Hike Beautiful Trails.
With a plethora of options you will enjoy some of the best hiking available in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Follow our pre-planned hikes or set off on your own adventure during your down time. The possibilities and beautiful sights are endless.
Bike the Copper Country.
Marc Norton, an avid mountain biker, bike builder, and architect of the local Swedetown Bike Trails, will be leading our outings. The Keweenaw Peninsula is home to several of the Nation's top mountain biking trails. Enjoy action-packed mountian biking, set out on a lakeside trip down M26, or cruise around campus. We offer riding for all ages and skill levels.
Boat our Scenic Waterways.
Our canoeing and kayaking will be lead by Duane and Joni Bennett, outdoor enthusiasts and boating extraordinaires.* We will venture to safe, beautiful, and fun locales for this section of Adventure Camp. Bring your tackle box and pole to fish our pristine waterways.**
*Personal floatation devices are required for each boater. Gitche Gumee Bible Camp will provide PFD's upon request. Any camper already in posession of PFDs is requested to bring theirs to Adventure Camp.
**Must be licensed if necessary and follow all Michigan State Department of Natural Resources laws and regulations.
Camp under the Stars.
One night during our Adventure Camp, we will offer an optional "Sleep under the Stars" outing on Gitche Gumee Bible Camp's own beach. Our evening meal will be cooked over the open fire and enjoyed lakeside. We may even get the great pleasure of seeing the Northern Lights. The picture to the left was shot this past summer on Gitche Gumee Beach.
