We believe that wilderness is a formative space, a classroom for learning how to lead and serve others. Wilderness offers a space to step away from the busyness and frenzy of normal life. It provides a quiet and powerful space to honestly examine values and desires. It is a place for rest and retreat, but it is also a place to find challenge that awakens the soul.
Adventure is that experience where the senses are heightened and the heart and mind are receptive and ready to be formed. It stirs a hunger for greater depths of character. Adventure is the perfect context to introduce transformational ideas. Adventure has long been, and is proven as, a resource for educators and great leaders.
Community is where we, as people, have been designed to live out our lives. Our callings and passions are only fulfilled in the midst of healthy community. Our programs are designed to define and nurture a healthy understanding of genuine, life giving, community. Community is where we learn to love and value others, which is essential to the heart of a servant leader.
