A typical event may consist of the following general outline:
Day 1. Arrival, check-in, introductions, and instructions, followed by a trip to camp at a state park. At the campsite, gear will be distributed and camp set up. Next comes the main activities. During this time, all students will have opportunities to lead the group and will face challenges that require teamwork to overcome. After dinner, students and staff will gather around a campfire for fellowship and discussions about lessons learned during the day.
Day 2. After breakfast, we will usually have an outdoor worship service followed by more challenging activities, then we will break camp and leave for home.
Your custom trip may be structured in this same format, or may look completely different depending on your needs and interests.
