Now that you have your group at camp, why not extend your stay for more group building, faith formation, leadership and fun with your youth? Each camp will offer program options to extend your stay, or contact the camp to create your own program/retreat! Extended stay options costs are in addition to Camp SJ. Registration takes place with the camp. During Group Registration you have the option to check the extended camp options you are interested in. The camps will contact you with more information. Your camp assignment for Camp SJ will take into account which extended option you are interested in.
Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry: Camp Vermilion
Option #1: 3 day/2 night BWCA Trip Once Camp SJ is done, your group will begin orientation for a quick trip into the BWCA. On site orientation at Camp Vermilion includes basic canoeing instruction (portaging, paddling, and gear practice), route planning, and instructions on how to pack for the trip. After a good night's sleep and an early breakfast in camp Wednesday morning, it is off to the entry point where the adventure continues. Groups will come out of the BWCA after 12 noon on Friday and return to Camp Vermilion for a sauna, a shower and then head for home. Groups will be provided with all the gear and food needed along with a VLM trained wilderness guide. Group size is limited to 8 (at least one adult). Cost includes all on site meals (Tuesday pm, Wednesday am), lodging, and everything for the BWCA adventure. Cost: $300/person for groups of 8, $325/person for groups of 7, $360/person for groups of 6 or under.
Option #2: Keep on Campin' Even though Camp SJ is over, the good times keep rolling. VLM staff will join cabin/church groups who want to continue their week at Camp Vermilion. Starting on Tuesday, these campers will connect with camp life and participate in all the usual camp activities- time on the waterfront, group games on the ballfield, singing at campfire, meals on the deck of Voyageur Lodge, small group Bible Studies and conversation, and teambuilding. This customized week of camp is a great way for your group to deepen their bond all while enjoying the fun of camp in God's great Northwoods. Camp will run through noon on Friday. Cost: $225/person (adult chaperones are free)
