The Boundary Waters Experience is a wilderness adventure ministry, located near Ely, MN.
Groups experience the 1.2 million acre treasure of pristine wilderness that is overflowing with over 1,200 lakes, rivers, and streams. In this beautiful classroom, groups will engage with nature, grow in faith, and share with one another. In addition to paddling and exploring the beauty each day, the groups participate in quiet times, intentional conversations about faith, and life stories, an opportunity to hear the stories of each person’s life. The Classic Boundary Waters Experience is essential to creating rich community while strengthening faith.
The BWX ministry creates intimate and trusting connections through the facilitation of unique group discussion, sharing life stories, and living faithfully in the ways of Jesus.
