Ready to trade sitting indoors on Zoom for fresh air, beautiful scenery, and no screen time? Enjoy the great outdoors and connect with friends at Camp Amnicon on the shores of Lake Superior!
Youth will enjoy a fun-filled getaway that’s both energizing and relaxing, including hiking along the Amnicon River, Voyageur canoes, time on the Lake Superior beachfront, a day trip to Duluth, and an overnight trip to Madeline Island.
Youth will be assigned to a small group with adult leaders for ALL activities – travel, meals, daily activities, and overnight sleeping (in tents). Groups will not mix during the trip (exceptions possible for outdoor worship, with physical distancing). Our summer programs this year are built around small group experiences and getting to know each other as we connect as a Christian faith community.
The trip is led by our youth ministers, Per Nestingen and Josh Carlson, and other St. Andrew’s adults.
Ages/Grades: For youth completed Grades 6-12. Limited space is available (40 spots).
Cost: $250 per person. This amount is significantly reduced from the true cost thanks to the generosity of church members who support youth ministries. You are able to make a down payment of $150. To do so, check the + sign in the box under event fees and uncheck remaining balance box. Financial assistance is available for additional support. To request a scholarship or payment plan, enter “PLAN” in the code box on the registration form and we’ll be in touch.
COVID Safety: We value the safety and well-being of our youth, volunteers, staff, and ministry partners, so we’re asking everyone to do their part by following our Youth Ministries Summer 2021 Safety Plan. Registering for summer events assumes a commitment to follow these guidelines, which includes limiting physical contact prior to trips and pre-trip COVID testing. Please review these guidelines prior to registering.
Once on the trip, youth and adults essentially form a “family/household” group and thus following our plan is key to everyone’s health and safety.
At this time, we intend our summer programs will continue as planned. We’ll communicate with families should there be changes.
Transportation: Van transportation during the trip will be provided by St. Andrew’s, each van with up to 10 youth and 2 adults. Van groups will be the same small groups that travel, eat, and stay overnight together for the entire trip.
Registration: Click “Register for this Event” to begin the registration process. If you have a St. Andrew’s Connect account, be sure to sign in first. If you don’t have a Connect account, please sign up to enter your information to be saved in our system for future registrations.
