College

Forming

Young adults stand at the precipice of many defining life decisions.  These moments are crucial points full of possibility and new beginnings.  Community is forged and beliefs are made firm.  That's why we love introducing college students to the classroom of wilderness, adventure and challenge.  In that context we can help them make the leap from mundane to mighty as they journey with Christ.

As you plan an adventure for your college group, consider booking an Adventure Retreat full of unifying team-building activities or a Challenge Expedition that will solidify your core of leadership.

Also, individuals have the potential to gain credit and life experience through an internship or a Challenge Expedition. 

By not knowing the trails or the itinerary or the plan, I must live out the week not day by day but moment by moment. It reminded me of the Psalmist "thy Word is a light unto my path". Sometimes God only reveals our journey a few steps at a time. Like night hiking with flashlights. But we are together and we have our daily bread and we have our maps and compasses and we have God that is enough. - Steve Johnson, YM, Osage Hills Christian Church, OK
I think challenge is something that pushes you beyond what you're used to or what you think you can do. It is something that requires added effort or skill, beyond what would be normal; maybe even outside help. It pushes us to our limits, sometimes even further than what we think our limits are! It teaches us by making us rely on outside help, or find something within us we didn't know was there. - Participant from Ozark Christian College Challenge Expedition
