[High School/Ages 17-18]
[High School/Ages 14-16]
A wilderness experience for high school students with a strong emphasis on leadership development and spiritual formation.
The Compass experience invites you to explore a deeper commitment to your faith and community, and to challenge yourself with the risks and choices involved in a remote backcountry adventure. Compass takes you into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and is a true wilderness experience. You will encounter problems to solve and experiences that push you outside your physical, mental, and spiritual comfort zones. As a young leader, you will practice leadership, grow in responsibility to your team, and develop new friendships. You will paddle through pristine lakes, navigate wilderness waterways, lead with a map and compass, and build a solid sleeping shelter. You will spend time around a campfire, sharing stories with your team, and keeping a journal will help you to reflect on your Compass adventure.
