A Guide’s Journey through the Adirondacks

A Guide’s Journey through the Adirondacks


Plus, An Adirondack Presentation (Friday, July 21, 7 PM)

Are you ready for an adventure?  Join Paul Gibaldi as he leads us by canoe or kayak to Balfour Pond, near Newcomb, NY.  It is an extremely remote area beyond the reach of daily life!  Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic overlooking the water and take a swim at your leisure.  We will take time to connect spiritually in creation and share in fellowship.  Come the night before for Paul’s Adirondack Presentation where he will give us a glimpse of the next days adventure and his witness as a Wilderness Guide.  Overnight accommodations available upon request!

Cost: $70 brown bag lunch ($65 for overnight stay, $5 breakfast)

($140 overnight plus “Journey”)
