 Step back from your schedule and refocus your attention on the Creator.



April 29- May 3   $139.00

Virginia's Triple Crown is one of the most popular and scenic stretches of the Appalachian Trail. Absorb the beauty of God's creation as your journey takes you to panoramic vista that few people get to enjoy.

McAffee Knob is said to be the most photographed spot on the entire 2200 miles of the AT. Come join us!

Has the historic Appalachian Trail been calling your name? Do you need to step aside from your daily routine and focus on the Lord? This ladies discipleship hike may be for you...

Our experienced staff will guide you on this 5 day adventure on the Appalachian Trail and the Andy Layne Trail, covering approximately 26 miles.

Our "off campus"  trips are based on the scriptural principle found in Proverbs 27:17, "Iron Sharpeneth Iron...".

The goal is to allow women to focus on the Creator while strengthening each other's walk with Christ. This discipleship trip can be a pivotal and monumental place in lives of those who attend.

The trip is ranked as "moderate to dificult". It is rugged enough for the experienced hiker to enjoy, yet will push the  "once a year" hiker.

Backpacks, water-bottles, mess kits, permits, and dinner meals on the trail are provided. This can be a life changing adventure as you push yourself to new levels. This trip is for adult females and teen ladies age 16 or older. 



Please be in prayer about this and remember that the devil will try and hinder any opportunity in which we may try and draw closer to the Lord. This is also an opportunity to help another Christian grow in her walk with God.

This section of the trail that we will hike is beautiful and very enjoyable to hike. I will be the Lead Guide during the week and Mary Rood will be the assistant guide. We are looking forward to an exciting time of spiritual growth.

The cost of the trip will be $139.00 per person. You can write a check to The Wilderness Christian Camp or simply pay online with a credit card. The cost includes all your evening meals, backpack, water bottles, tent, mess kit, maps, and permits. Please let me know if you have questions or details that need to be cleared up.

I am eagerly anticipating an amazing week together. I am praying that God will do a great work among us during these five days. Please pray along with me.

In His Service,
Kelly Perlak
