Wilderness Trips for 2021 have not been determined yet but the following are examples of what may be offered.   

PATHFINDER     Backpacking on North Manitou Island

With over 15,000 acres of wilderness to explore and surrounded by the sparkling cool waters of Lake Michigan, this is a trip sure to be full of excitement, discovery and plenty of fun!  On this thrilling backpacking adventure, campers will travel to North Manitou Island for five days and four nights to navigate the beautiful shoreline and interior of one of the great island wilderness areas in the Great Lakes region. Home to a variety of wildlife; you never know when you may encounter a whitetail deer grazing outside your tent, hear the howl of a coyote off in the distance or watch a piping plover scurry along the sandy beach.  North Manitou Island is located 12 miles west of Leland in Lake Michigan, so back-country swimming and beach exploration is always a camper favorite.  We hope you can join us for this great wilderness opportunity this summer!

CANOER  – Platte, Betsie & Crystal Rivers

Are you looking for a true canoeing adventure?  Is carrying a pack not your thing?  Would you prefer to have the river do the heavy lifting?  Well then come along this summer, as we set out to explore 3 amazingly beautiful and diverse meandering river ways in and around Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula.  After setting up base camp in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park; expect to venture out daily for adventures on the Platte, Betsie and Crystal Rivers. Exploring the natural beauty of some of Michigan’s most pristine rivers, we will build our paddling skills as we attempt varying levels of swift water and technical river paddling.  Over 4 days and 3 nights “on the trail” we will explore the vast wilderness, spot wildlife, relax on sand bars, and visit some of the best “hidden gem” beaches Michigan has to offer.  Be prepared for sun, fun and plenty of water!  Our days will end with picturesque sunsets, maybe even a dune climb and certainly some laughter around the campfire.  We hope you can join us in the summer for this wet and wild wilderness week!

EXPLORER  –  Backpacking Pictured Rocks

Sandstone cliffs, stunning picturesque views, waterfalls, wildlife, beautiful sunsets and the crystal blue waters of Lake Superior are just a few of the reasons to join us for a hiking trip that you will never forget.  Travel with us to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on the southern shore of Lake Superior for five days and four nights of some of the best wilderness that Michigan has to offer.  While there, we will explore the beauty of one of nature’s true works of art and marvel at the sights and sounds of 100+ foot rock cliffs, rolling waves and falling waters.  Hiking and camping along the shore of one of the world’s largest fresh water lakes, expect to encounter amazing wildlife in their natural habitat, explore pristine sandy beaches and rock formations and relax and swim in the cool refreshing waters of Lake Superior.  There may even be some time to hunt and enjoy some wild blueberries, raspberries or thimbleberries along the way.  Some prior wilderness experience and exposure to hiking and backpacking is preferred for this trip. We hope you can join us this summer for an unforgettable wilderness trip.  See you on the trail!
