How about canoeing at the base of a snow-capped mountain with breathtaking beauty? Enjoy the beauty of God’s creation and the fun of paddling with family or friends in a high alpine mountain lake. Make sure you bring some lawn chairs or picnic blankets with you so you can lounge and enjoy the mountain views between canoe trips.
Depending on the weather, we will be canoeing in the high alpine lakes of the Snowy Range Mountains or the Pines of North Crow Reservoir. There is great fishing in both areas. Bring a fishing pole if you want to fish and a fishing license. Also, there is a small parking fee for each vehicle in the canoeing area ($5). Canoes, paddles, and life jackets will be provided. If you have your own paddleboard, please feel free to bring it.
Day hiking in the high alpine of the Snow Range Mountains is an extraordinary experience. The views, snowcapped peaks, high alpine lakes, wildflowers, and freshwater mountain streams create a world-class hiking environment. Participants on hikes can expect to have a great time of fellowship, enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery, and also have some time to connect with Jesus in the wilderness. Hikes will range from beginner to intermediate. All ages are welcome. We encourage trekking poles if you have them.
Never rock climbed before? No problem! We will provide all the equipment and skilled rock climbers to make sure it is safe and rewarding. The rock climbing is located in a shaded aspen grove with a lot of space for fellowship, play for kids and mountain beauty. We will have beginner to intermediate routes set for everyone to try. Routes are 70 to 100 feet in length. You can climb all the way to the top or as far as you feel comfortable. All ages are welcome. Children 4 and up can climb. We will carpool to the climbing area and then hike a ½ mile to the rock wall. Space is limited to 20 participants each day.
