About Overnight Trips
These are special trips at HCC. Although we see beautiful sites, explore nature, and have fun, these trips are about community. Overnight trips provide what day outings and other activities cannot: a variety of quality time through driving, eating, exploring, living, cooking, and talking together. Overnights provide more time and space for relationships to begin. Consider joining us in a support or leadership role with a medium sized group of Chinese.
December 2-4*. Head to Duluth to see "Tour of Lights: America's Largest Free Walk Through Lighting Display." *We will either spend all day Saturday or spend the night (or two).
Memorial Day Weekend or first in June. We'll drive or take the Megabus to Chicago to tour the city! There are passes that allow access to multiple museums and attractions. We'll stay in a rented home or apartment and share our meals together. Looking for leaders who love the city, love Chicago, and would enjoy showing Chinese around.
July 2017. Our third annual trip to Grand Portage! Spend a Friday to Sunday exploring Duluth, Grand Maraias, and Grand Portage with 15 to 25 Chinese! We stay at a partner church on the reservation and learn about Native American culture and visit waterfalls while hiking. Very low cost!
August 2017. Drive out to one of the most famous parks in the United States. We'll be stopping at other sights along the way and will stay in motels/log-cabins. HCC will cover a large percentage of the trip fees. Group size estimated from 10-20. More to come in the months ahead.
Please check back in the months to come for more information or email Program Coordinator, Josh Driver, for more information. If one of these trips is of interest to you, please let us know and we can contact you as the dates approach and the details settle.
We are also considering Ely, Bemidji, South Dakota (Black Hills), Wisconsin Dells, and Lake Pepin (Red Wing/Stockholm).
