That’s why we make planning a trip as simple and easy as picking your dates and desired activities. Our team takes care of the rest.

YEAR ROUND


We offer wilderness experiences year round. Whether backpacking through alpine meadows in the summers or ice climbing frozen waterfalls in the winter, we’re here to help you pull off the trip of a lifetime. Not sure if you want to spend every night on the ground? Let’s wrap the trip up with a night in a rustic Colorado cabin and good meal by the fire. Regardless the season, or level of experience, we can put together a trip you will never forget.

DIG DEEP

One of the best things about a wilderness trip with college students is the opportunity to dig deep. With no technology to distract, nothing but the bare essentials and pristine mountain views, you can have the conversations that actually change the way people live. You’ll have the space to dig deep.

At the end of day four, once we have fully experienced creation, we will head to a cabin for a comfortable, relaxed evening. Here we will swap stories of the Lord’s goodness and tell tales of our shared experiences. Have I mentioned the food!?
