Canoe Trip / Summer Shabbaton

Congregation Canoe Trip / Summer Shabbaton
July 18-21, 2019

Are you the outdoors type? Do you like to canoe and camp? Have no prior experience but you want to try something new? If so,  a’s summer ShHakafa’s summer Shabbaton is for you! Join us for gourmet dining and a community experience on the river July 18-21, 2019.
This year we will return to the Pine River Paddle Sports Center (PRPSC) in Wellston, MI where we will establish a base camp. PRPSC is privately owned and extremely well maintained. We have reserved a wooded site that provides ample space for a large group. We have potable water available in the site. A short walk from our campsite are bathrooms equipped with sinks, flush toilets and hot showers. At our planning meeting(s) we will divvy out meals responsibility though we all help with meal preparation and clean-up. Children are welcome, but they must be strong swimmers.
Our itinerary is as follows:

  • Arrive Thursday July 18 and set-up camp. Dinner at the Twin Creek Inn, a Northwood’s supper club at 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday July 19: Paddle the Menominee River.
  • Saturday July 20: Paddle the Pine River.
  • Sunday July 21: Paddle the Pierre Marquette River. Drive home.

Based on prior trip expenses, the cost per person for the campsite, canoes and gratuities comes to approximately $160. Scholarships are available. Please contact Rabbi Elder is a scholarship is needed.
If you would like to participate, please confirm by contacting John Wolfson ( or 847-344-9323).
