Men’s Fall Retreat at Kowakan
September 13 - 15
Take a weekend off the grid to relax and enjoy some well-earned R&R in the North Woods to Ko-Wa-Kan near Ely! It promises to be a great weekend of being in the outdoors with the hint of fall colors, the call of loons, soaring eagles, scenic paddling on a few day trips, amazing night skies, warm campfires, great food and good friendship! And if we're lucky, maybe we'll even have a shore dinner of fresh fish!
All you'll need to bring is a sleeping bag and fishing gear if you want to fish. Canoes, paddles, PFDs/life vests, food, cooking gear, etc., will be furnished. We base camp at the Ko-Wa-Kan camp at night, and do canoe trips during the day.
