What’s in store for you.

While out on the trail, you will be getting to know yourself better, reflecting on your abilities, your goals, and your calling. You will be part of a community where everyone matters. You will become involved more deeply in caring for the Creation by developing a sense of life with minimum impact, and by sharing in trails work and rehabilitation projects.

The life of faith.

We also hope that camp will help you grow in your faith. You do not have to be a Lutheran to be at Christikon—you do not even have to be a believer, however, faith shapes our life together at Christikon. We worship together at the beginning and end of every day. We take time each day to study the Bible together. We usually have daily Quiet Time, so each of us can have a brief chance to be alone with God. And there are all kinds of unscheduled times where we find ourselves both challenged and deepened.

Food and meal times.

Sharing together in the common life during meals is a significant part of the Christikon life. On the trail you will be sharing “family style” in meals that you and others prepare for the whole group. We try to serve tasty and nutritious meals, even though we try to live within budgets and use ingredients that do not weigh too much or take up too much space. There are some limitations on what we can have for meals, but we hope you’ll find the food good for you, and that you’ll participate as graciously as you can in the meals offered. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know on your health form. We will make every effort to accommodate dietary needs, however, we may encourage you to bring your own backpack meals and snacks that fit your needs.
