Apostles Adventure

Get Ready for the Challenge
Make sure that you do some prepping, so that you will be fit for the adventure. Be able to walk a mile, lift and carry 20-30 pounds, and have the confidence to try new things like living without electricity and running water.

To properly prepare for our group the Team Leadership Center must receive their waiver and health form early.  Read, Sign, and Send to Camp (P.O. Box 950, East Troy, WI 53120) Before July 1:

Extra items to Bring
  • Good quality rain gear. Poncho and pants work best.
  • Camera, journal, and pen with you to capture all your experiences. (optional)
  • Good athletic shoes or hiking boots.
  • Warm clothes at night because it can get a little windy and cool up north.
  • Lightweight pants, so you can be comfortable in heat and protected from shrubs and mosquitoes.

Spending Money
You may want to bring extra money besides what you set aside for Camp Alice Chester Trading Post souvenirs. While you are away from camp you may want to purchase souvenirs, ice cream, or other snack items. This is not mandatory, only suggested by past adventure campers.

You will ride in a camp van that holds 12 passengers driven by one of our trained and qualified staff members. Remember that the van needs to hold twelve people, luggage, plus some of the community belongings and food so make sure to pack light!

Emergencie Services
