An overview of what to expect on course.
You will spend a week backpacking in the breath-taking Wind River Range. There you will see towering peaks, beautiful alpine lakes and streams, meadows of wildflowers, and incredible starlit skies in some of the finest wilderness areas in North America.
We will teach you the skills to live in the wilderness, such as campsite selection, navigation, backcountry cooking, and going to the bathroom in the outdoors!
Your instructors will also model for you what it looks like to lead the group, and then you will get the chance to be a leader one day as well.
Each day will have a spiritual theme with family time in the evenings that often includes a devotional, discussion, and worship.
