HOMESCHOOL ENDEAVOR ADVENTURE
July 14-18, 2024
Some of the most intimate discoveries of the character of God happen in the wilderness. When we remove distractions and step away from the noise, we can fruitfully practice the disciplines of listening and longing. In the quiet of a cave, at the heights of a rock cliff, winding down a river or in exuberant worship around a campfire, your time in God’s creation will draw you toward life-long transformation. We want to support homeschool families as they instill habits of the Christ-centered lifestyle in their students. Will you choose adventure?
Discovery Ministries (DM) has created Endeavor Adventure, a wilderness adventure retreat, specifically for home-schooled students age 12-15. In an experiential retreat-based setting, students will use the knowledge and skills which homeschooling has taught in order to grow in a deeper understanding of God and their walk with Him. We believe Endeavor Adventure will help students experience God in creation as they overcome fear, learn communication skills, engage in team-building activities, and more - life skills DM considers necessary for growth as a Christ-follower.
What is it?
Endeavor Adventure is a 4-day Adventure Retreat that will offer a variety adventure-based activities, such as ropes courses, canoeing, orienteering, caving, climbing and rappelling facilitated by Discovery Ministries’ highly trained staff. Activity debriefings will help students translate what they experience through those activities to actual life in Christ. The exact itinerary of activities will vary in order to meet the needs and goals for each retreat. Evening campfire devotions will provide scripture-based discussions to help apply lessons learned throughout the day. Students will stay in a lodge where all of their meals will be provided.
