While outdoor adventures are nothing new to our ministry, we are excited to expand and offer even more experiences through our Outdoor Education program. Wilderness adventures offer opportunities for youth to be engaged with the complexities of Creation, to be both physically and mentally challenged in new and exciting ways, and to learn new skills associated with a specific excursion. In addition to our ever-popular Spring Break Backpacking trips, we look forward to offering other experiences such as rafting, spelunking, rock climbing, and more!
