Camp Amnicon is a high adventure camp affiliated with the ELCA and located on the south shore of Lake Superior. During the summer small groups go out on various canoe and hiking trips with highly trained guides. Amnicon has work weekends during the year to get the camp ready for the different seasons. The summer camping season is over and the fall-winter-spring retreat season will soon start. Wall tents need to come down and put in storage; staff cabins need to be emptied, the grounds need to be picked up, etc. In exchange for your volunteer labor, you have a bed to sleep in (bunk rooms) and delicious meals. No special talents are necessary and all ages are welcome. There is also time to explore the 700 acres of wilderness. Due to volunteer labor it is possible for at-risk youth to attend camp (about a quarter of the campers), as well as to serve church groups from all over the country. If you are interested or want to learn more, talk to or call Cheri Moe or Margaret Coleman.
