Camp Luther Keweenaw Base Camp
In the midst of God’s creation, Keweenaw Base Camp builds up individuals and groups through intentional Christ-centered service opportunities, wilderness excursions, and extraordinary challenges that inspire faith, courage, and a faithful life of service to God and others.
The inspiration for Keweenaw Base Camp came in the spring of 2011 when Carl and Michelle Treankler, loyal friends and supporters of Camp Luther, offered the use of their newly purchased property near Houghton, MI.
The unique 220 acre parcel located six miles west of Houghton, MI was at one time a farm and more recently a goose hunting camp. When purchased, the property included a small lake, a pond, a home, cabin, and old hunting lodge.
The concept of a base camp means it is a launching point for off-site activities and the U.P. of Michigan is filled with incredible activities! Keweenaw Base Camp programs are targeted at high school students and provide a close-knit community feel, intentional group building, and incredible adventure experiences, such as backpacking, sea-kayaking on Lake Superior, mountain biking, and mine exploration. All programs seek to "build up" in the faith while providing opportunities for personal growth, challenges, community building, and adventure.
We thank you for your prayers as this exciting ministry opportunity moves forward. If you have any questions, please contact Woody, Executive Director, at Camp Luther.
