Adult Backpacking or CreationCare • dates and fees as arranged
Christikon can host groups of adults (couples, young adults, one-gender groups, older adults, etc.) in the magnificent mountain wilderness surrounding camp. Groups must have at least six people, and can have no more than twelve. Two Christikon staff lead each group.
Dates can be arranged within the context of youth camp trails sessions (June 29-July 1, July 10-16, July 22-26. July 30-Aug5). Youth sessions cover six nights (four in the back country, first and last nights at camp). Your group can reduce the number of days in the back country to 2 or 3; but at least 3 is recommended. You arrive the afternoon of the first day of the session, stay overnight at camp for orientation and packing-out, and head into the wilderness the next morning. You remain in the back country for 2, 3, or 4 nights, and return to Christikon the afternoon of your last day on the trail. Typically, the group leaves Christikon early the next morning after staying overnight at camp, but some adult groups may choose to leave Christikon once they are packed in and cleaned up.
Your route can be tailored to your group. You may do a three- or four-night back country loop, or you may arrange for setting up a two- to four-night base camp from which you day-hike (so you carry packs only the first and last days). Our staff people can lead the program; or they can work with you in shared program leadership for Bible study, Quiet Time and worship.
If your group is interested in a back country service project to rehabilitate or enhance trails, campsites and pristine areas, you may wish to register as a CreationCare group. Click here for information on that program.
Costs: to be arranged with office. Contact the camp office by telephone (406 656-1969) or by e-mail to make arrangements.
