Are you a gr.10-12 student who is wanting to challenge yourself in faith, life and adventure in the wild of God’s Creation, and earn high school credits while doing so?

If so, then you may want to consider the Adventure Discipleship Program with HCOS.

The Adventure Discipleship Program provides students a chance to work toward up to 14 credits towards their grad program completion. Students work toward credit for PE, Applied Skills, Christian Studies and Leadership, while also preparing for (and participating in!) a week long backpacking trip. Previous trip locations have included the South Chilcotin Mountains, Cape Scott, Strathcona, and the Nootka Trail.

Imagine…a week backpacking in God’s wild with fellow students and professional guides…as part of your school year!
