Location: “Lanphear Lake” in Lawrence Michigan

Date: July 25th-27th

Groups Invited: Pathfinder Clubs (Otsego GET REAL, Gobles Pinedale Sylvaneers, Centreville Sentinels, & Hartford Falcons.

This was one of the most amazing events of the summer, and we saw the power of God actually change the weather and make it move around us the entire weekend!  There was rain forcasted, but we kept praying and we had perfect weather the entire weekend while there was rain and storms (even hail) above and below us!

We ended up having around 60 people total, and our survival training expert Jay “Fireman” Peterson taught everyone lots of survival skills, but the most important skill was to depend on God!

Music filled the air as we sang many songs around the campfire, and we were very blessed to have lots of musical talent with guitars, violins, and ukuleles!  Worship messages were given by John Lanphear and focused on getting a more vivid reality of God and taking our prayers and relationship with God to extreme levels as Jesus taught in John 14:12-15!

Some of the events included Bible charades, survival training, a wild edible plants trek, zip lining, rope swinging, and much more.
