Tailor Made Group Wilderness Adventures
Changing hearts and relationships through outdoor adventure in wilderness settings is our specialty. We tailor make a course to fit your group's needs. Whether you desire to build a stronger team, take relationships deeper, focus on spiritual growth in Jesus, or develop personal character, we can create an adventure for you. Any age, any group.
Adventures & Activities
We can mix and match many wilderness activities to make a true adventure. Choose from rock climbing, rappelling, backpacking, natural history, day hikes, mountaineering/peak climbing, caving, snowshoeing, canyoneering, low and high rope course activities, initiative and team building games, volunteer work and mission projects, and a few other surprises. Experience is not required as participants will receive basic instruction in each activity, and the difficulty will be adjusted to the capability of the group. Even trips for the handicapped are available. Safety and low environmental impact are of highest priority. All activities are not ends in themselves, but are used to develop spiritual and relational growth.
Course Areas: Sierra Nevada Mountains & California Desert Regions
Adventure locations vary from beautifully peaceful to ruggedly spectacular. Where we take your group may depend upon the time of year, the length of your trip, and the activities you'd like to experience. Most adventures end up in the Southern or Central Sierra in one of the many National Forests, Parks, or Wilderness Areas of that region. In the winter or spring we can take you high into the snow, out into the uniquely beautiful California desert, or to the quiet cottonwood and chaparral canyons of the Santa Barbara backcountry. We operate under special-use permit in all areas requiring such (Sequoia & Inyo Nat'l Forests, Sequoia & Kings Canyon Nat'l Parks, California Desert BLM).
