Start out the new year with family and friends in God's Great Northwoods! Gather with others from Elim at Camp Vermilion, located on Lake Vermilion less than 2 hours north of Duluth, for a fun weekend of connecting with God, your family, and others from Elim.  We will stay in the camp's retreat center, called the Bakk House.  

Arrive Friday evening after 7pm.  Eat dinner on your own.  Car pooling can be arranged once people have registered. 


The Bakk House will be our home for the weekend - Upstairs there is a living room/meeting area, bathrooms/shower, a kitchen, and  3 rooms with 4 bunk beds each.  Downstairs there are 3 rooms with 2 bunk beds each along with a game room and bathrooms/showers.  Located just steps away from the Bakk House is the brand new sauna. Both mornings we will enjoy breakfast at our leisure in the Bakk House.  Lunch on both Saturday and Sunday and dinner on Saturday will be cooked and served by the camp staff in the dining hall.

There will be opportunities for Family Bible Study, crafts, games, outdoor time (ice fishing, sledding, snowshoeing, etc.), movies, campfire, use of the sauna, and more!  It will be a fun weekend of laughing, relaxing, playing, and creating memories.

We will depart from home on Sunday afternoon around 3pm.
