5 Nights, 4 Days of Fishing, Endless Unhurried Time
Imagine days in the beauty of God’s creation on private Obabikon Island on Lake of the Woods, surrounded by brothers and sisters in Christ, fishing and enjoying each other’s company. This extended unhurried time is sure to fill your soul. And the fishing has been really good over the years – walleye, northern and even some musky, bass and crappie.
In addition, you’ll enjoy great food (shore lunches too!), expert fishing guides, and morning devotionals with the Fort Staff. You’ll come back refreshed, and hopefully with a few good fish stories!

Valid Proof of Citizenship and ID
A U.S. passport, passport card or NEXUS card all serve as proof of both citizenship and identification. Of these, a passport is the best choice, because it’s the only universally accepted travel ID. If you don’t have one of these three documents, you can cross the border using your government-issued photo ID and one of the following documents to prove your citizenship: A U.S. birth certificate, certificate of citizenship or naturalization, permanent resident card or certificate of Indian status. Canadian authorities reserve the right to deny entry to people with a criminal record including offenses like theft, assault, manslaughter, dangerous driving, driving while under the influence, and possession or trafficking of controlled substances.
Traveling With Children
If you’re traveling with children under 16, they only need to present proof of their U.S. citizenship at the border crossing. That said, Canadian officials are on the lookout for kidnapped or trafficked children, so be ready for some increased scrutiny when you travel with kids. If either of the custodial parents is not present – or if you’re not a custodial parent or legal guardian of the child you’re traveling with – bring a consent letter from the absent parent(s). The letter should state that you’re authorized to travel with the child and include both parents’ full names, addresses and telephone numbers.
Food Allergy Note
For this trip, all food is provided by Obabikon Bay Island Camp. They can be contacted at (618) 322-4759 or by email at email@example.com to respond to any dietary questions or concerns.
