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!

Spring Break Youth Backpacking

We’re making our way back to South Cumberland State Park in Monteagle, TN in March 2020!  Campers will travel to southern Tennessee, to experience the unforgettable scenery of the Cumberland Plateau! The waterfalls and winding trails are sights you don’t want to miss. This 4 day 3 night adventure will involve hiking and tent camping throughout South Cumberland State Park and the Fiery Gizzard Recreation Area. Friday Night will be spent at CLS.
