Adventures and active time are a large part of the formational education we promote during this program. Three afternoons of the week are dedicated to on-site recreation. Our retreat setting during the fall semester will provide plenty of fun opportunities like hiking, exploring, playing fields, spike ball, basketball, volleyball, and much more. Indoor recreation includes foosball, ping-pong, board games, etc. Our Manitou campus during the spring semester will offer direct access to historic Manitou Springs, Colorado and all it has to offer like shopping, restaurants, hiking, sightseeing, and an old fashioned “penny arcade.”
Students will partake in weekly adventures as part of the curriculum to explore nature, build relationships, and make real-life connections with the content learned in the classroom. Adventures likely include activities such as hiking, backpacking, sightseeing, exploring, camping, caving, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, ski/snowboarding, and cultural experiences such as opra, theatre, museums, and historic sights. Each Semester will have at least one multi day outing, two of which will be to Utah for a canyoneering adventure during the fall and a theological mission trip in the spring.
