ENCOUNTER is a week-long casual adventure for junior high and senior high youth.  Camp with ease and access to more “front-country” accommodations.  ENCOUNTER is designed to introduce you to outdoor activities in a relaxed environment.  Picnic tables, coolers, bathrooms and tents make ENCOUNTER a less extreme week.  Though the physical challenges may be fewer, the spiritual engagement is just as rich.  You will establish a base camp and from it you will hike, rock climb, rappel, and raft.  Push yourself on our challenge course (low and high elements), the climbing wall, and the zip line.  There are 16 spaces available to girls and boys.

Destination 2017: TBA

“Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step off alone into a new place there will be, along with the feelings of curiosity and excitement, a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.” ~ Wendell Berry
