Wild and Free Teens- A Deep Adventure Whitewater Challenge for teens 15-17
Dates: Aug 6-11, 2024
Location: Champagne Island and Barker Lake whitewater
Cost: $675 (includes food)
Calling all teens to explore what is calling them to deeper living and what it means to live in freedom. Go into the wild to discover who you are meant to be! We will paddle the Churchill to the Champagne Islands and do the loop into Barker Lake to learn some whitewater canoe skills. This trip has it all from lake paddling, white-water fun, portaging and fantastic camping on the Canadian shield. We will have time to swim, fish and learn new skills with an encouraging and fun group.
The Deep Adventure Trips bring faith into the wilderness experience. This will include devotionals, prayer, testimonials and deep conversation around the fire. You do not have to have any faith background to participate or join the Deep Adventure trips. It is good to hear everyone's story and learn from each other.
You will receive a detailed email with all the information needed for preparing and planning for your trip. If you have any additional questions, please contact Ang at 306-212-0115 or email email@example.com
