Backcountry Essentials

Have you ever found yourself out in the backcountry and realized you forgot to pack in one of the essentials? God forbid it be toilet paper... Nobody enjoys using sticks and leaves.

Keeping our eyes up in the New Year

The Biggest Blessing in Serving

“Yahweh, Yahweh, We love to shout Your name, oh Lord” The voices were all being raised in song around the campfire and then suddenly everyone stood up. I could feel it in the air that night, in the song, in the moment, and in everyone's hearts. God was present and God was being worshiped. As [...]

Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Who we are

We are a group of Christians who want to safely lead people into the wonder of God’s creation, challenging them through adventures designed to help them grow personally, relationally, and spiritually.   We focus our program on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.

Booking & Reservation Questions

We've tried to spell out who we are and why we think spending time in the outdoors is so valuable. But if you've still got questions, please don't hesitate to contact us, we'd love to help.
