Would you like to try an exciting, outdoor adventure? Do you like biking, canoeing, camping and more? Then this off-site program is just for you!

You’ll bike the scenic Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail, canoe the breathtakingly, beautiful Kickapoo River — and adventure by camping along the way! Your travel adventures will include fun camp activities such as, games, campfires, Bible Study, group bonding, and more! Come with your youth group, friends, or alone – either way you’ll make lots of new friends along the way on this epic camp adventure…

This program is also great for Confirmation groups who want to bond in a new way! If the weeks offered on the schedule don’t work for your Confirmation group, call camp. We can work together to find another week that works.

Sugar Creek provides your equipment and staff. Campers should bring their own helmet and if possible bring a bike in good working order. **Campers entering this program should be able to bike at least 5 miles a day at a steady pace.**

Campers will sleep at multiple campsites, in their hammocks, throughout the week! There will be rooms in one of our lodges reserved for them in case of bad weather.
