All about the Canoe Excursion.

Your Alpine Adventures guide will provide instruction in proper paddling and maneuvering techniques for tandem, open faced canoes. Besides canoeing, you and your friends can enjoy the scenic Appalachian Mountains and wildlife by exploring, swimming, and hiking around the lake.

Best of all, spiritual application will be made during a Bible devotional time, creating a meaningful Christian activity for your youth group, family, or church group.

Dear Friends of Alpine Ministries,

While we are not holding our day camps and resident Bible camps, we are continuing with our Adventures and Retreats programs on a limited basis. Due to the uncertainty of the summer, we made the decision to not hire any seasonal staff. However, with our full-time adventure staff and occasional help from a few guides who are nearby, we are able to facilitate groups up to 50 people.

We are following the operational and sanitization guidelines set by the state of West Virginia and the CDC. We are continuing to monitor these guidelines and to implement changes accordingly.

Since we are operating on a smaller scale, the calendar is quickly filling. Call now to check availability and schedule your adventure trip or retreat. We are also planning to run a full Gauley Season this September-October. Book your trip on the "The Beast of the East": 304-877-6427.

In His Service,
Dave Holloway
Vice President for Extension Ministries
