Adventure Discipleship 10-12

The Adventure Discipleship Program is a unique opportunity for adventurers at heart - an opportunity to explore and be encouraged to grow your passion for Christ within the context of exploring outdoor adventure. In the program, students will be engaged in discipleship, build leadership skills and learn practical outdoor recreational skills while earning high school credits. The program builds toward a multi-day group expedition in the natural beauty of God’s Creation, with locations ranging from the mountains (Fall program), to a week long coastal backpacking trip (Spring program). Students will also be encouraged to gain industry level certification in outdoor skill areas of choice.

The Program is open to students in gr.10-12.

Successful completion of the program will grant students 14 credits:

  • Graduation Program courses:
