Outdoor Education

We not only live in the woods, we learn and play in them as well!

From daily instruction and work to special week-long retreats, the outdoors is an important classroom for our students. We know that our students will experience both enjoyment and frustration in our programming. There are aspects of outdoor work and play that are quite hard and challenging – but rewarding. The times of success and ease will motivate our students to stretch themselves even further. The more difficult times will produce tension in their lives that will expose them to some inward realities. Their responses to these challenges often bring many opportunities for personal growth and ministry.
