Institutes: Summit Semester
Our fall Summit Semester is located at Snow Wolf Lodge in the remote mountain wilderness of the San Juan National Forest near Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Ours is an intentionally and carefully crafted biblical worldview community similar to Francis Schaeffer’s L’Abri, where everyone on site will have daily responsibilities like meal preparation, cleaning, and routine facility maintenance. All of this will provide critical preparation needed for university life.
Snow Wolf Lodge provides two modern yet rustic buildings for our program. The female staff and students will live in the newest building, Blue Creek. This building provides 15 private rooms. Each female student will have one roommate. The large common area in Blue Creek serves as our classroom each morning and discussion area most evenings. The original structure on the site, our main lodge, houses the male staff and students as well as our kitchen, dining room, game room, book store, and library. The men will stay in large rooms with three to five roommates, each with their own desk and study area.
Students and guests traveling to Snow Wolf Lodge may either bus or fly into Durango, Colorado. We will provide students with transportation at no charge from Durango to Snow Wolf Lodge (and back; about 1 hour and 30 minute travel time one way). Families may also drive to the Lodge, though students will not have use of their vehicles while attending Summit Semester (some exceptions allowed).
