Canoe Trip / Summer Shabbaton

Congregation Canoe Trip / Summer Shabbaton
August 5-8, 2021
(Reservations requested by June 25, 2021)

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, Hakafa’s summer Shabbaton is for you! Join us for gourmet dining and a community experience on the river August 5-8. Please note: We will be observing safe COVID-19 protocols as determined at that time. Only fully vaccinated people will be able to join us. 
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 on July 12 we will divvy out meals responsibility - though we all help with meal preparation and clean-up.
Our itinerary is as follows:

  • Arrive Thursday, August 5 and set-up camp. Dinner at Lakeside Charlies - a Northwood’s supper club at 7:00 PM.
  • Friday, August 6: Paddle the Menominee River.
  • Saturday, August 7: Paddle the Pine River.
  • Sunday, August 8: Paddle the Pierre Marquette River. Drive home.

Based on prior trip expenses, the cost per person for the campsite, canoes, and gratuities will be $170. So we can pay our deposit to PRPSC, please send a check for $170 per person, made out to John Wolfson, by June 25 to: John Wolfson, 3232 Maple Leaf Drive, Glenview, IL 60026. Deposits are refundable. Your final payment is due June 25.
We have scheduled a planning meeting for July 12 at 7:00 PM at the North Shore United Methodist Church (213 Hazel Avenue, Glencoe).
