Man Adventure: Oct. 11th-14th

Men, you are invited to our yearly "Man Adventure."
Registration DUE by Sunday, September 22 (no refunds)


Valor Ranch base camp is a 20 acre piece of land located off Hwy 25, south of Northport, WA, a 6.5 - 7 hr drive from Kenmore (maps available in confirmation email after you register) - approximately 15 mins from the Canadian border.

Food & Meals
Full kitchen and mess hall. All meals provided with your registration. Due to varying hunting and fishing times, we will have a late dinner TOGETHER each night around the campfire. Typically guys hunt/fish early in the morning, return for a bigger breakfast, and then have a lunch/snack late afternoon.

Campfires, Stories, Testimonies, and Tall Tales...
Every evening after dinner we will share some time around the campfire with stories, testimonies, and snacks. These are some of the most memorable times as we hear about lives changed by Christ. This alone is worth the price of admission!

Accommodations (beds, showers)
Beds for the first 30 guys who register. Additional registrants can sleep on the 2 couches, cots, or hammocks (cots and hammocks NOT provided). There are 3 indoor toilets and five showers available for those who like to keep it clean. The first 30 registrants will have priority sleeping in bunks.
If you snore, please provide EAR PROTECTION for your entire cabin! :-)

ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE times will vary based on when each group departs the Seattle area. For all those interested in saving money, try to CARPOOL as much as possible. Fuel $: registration does NOT cover fuel. Fuel costs will be worked out on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis between vehicle owner and passengers. Not only does carpooling save $, but it offers some fantastic fellowship on the road

Please consider giving extra ($10, $20, etc.) to help those who may not be able to afford it. We don't want $ to be an obstacle for anyone participating. Scholarships can be given directly to Pastor Eric or Jamie Teschlog.

Rest and Relaxation
Keep in mind that this is an OUTDOOR ADVENTURE, NOT exclusively a hunting and fishing trip. If neither of those activities appeal to you, there are other things to do such as hiking and exploring, not to mention the relaxation and fellowship. Every year I ask my sons their favorite experience from the trip. Their response? "Sitting around the campfire and talking...hearing the stories [of the other men]." There isn't a price one could put on the value of spending a few days enjoying God's creation with other brothers - knowing and being known. Some of the conversations and times of fellowship are absolutely priceless. This is a great time to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. It's also a good opportunity to catch up on some much-needed sleep...
