What to expect

  1. Time with Jesus.
  2. Depending on what group you choose, we hike betweem 5-15+ miles.
  3. Slow down, disconnect from the world, and fellowship with men and with Jesus.
  4. Learn outdoor skills like – orienteering, firebuilding, staying warm, setting up tent/hammocks, filtering water, backcountry cooking, etc.
  5. On the daily – Wake up, get warm, eat breakfast, group/solo Bible time, hit the trail, enjoy the terrain, chat with buddys, eat lunch, hike, set up camp, eat dinner, group Bible time, stay warm, sleep, repeat.
  6. On the way home – thaw,  shove our faces full of food, and get really excited to see your family!
