Boys Camp & Girls Camp

Campers entering grade 12

In the culminating experience of the Four Trails program, Odyssey campers work together to build a mobile community as they navigate some of the northern most parts of the Great Lakes region.

In 2023, Odyssey campers will complete a multi-week backpacking trip on Isle Royale National Park located in Lake Superior.

After completing their Odyssey, campers rejoin Miniwanca where they are welcomed by the entire camp community as they celebrate their incredible accomplishment. Once they have returned to camp, the campers deliver a community-wide message at Evening Reflection, sharing insights they gathered along their journey and during their time as Miniwanca campers.

“Our daughter comes home full of confidence and inner peace, ready for the next school year! Her heart is full of wonderful memories and time spent with good, good friends. So many great stories to share with her family. Thank you for the positive, values-laden influence you and others like you have on her during her stay at camp and on trail.”
