Travel and Outreach Programs


Planning for our 2019/2020 CR+P 12 (With Europe Trip) program is gearing up. For this, our 12th anniversary year, we would like to invite you to consider becoming an important part of the legacy. The CR+P Team always marvels at how the Spirit of God year after year transforms the life of each student who participates in this adventure BASED ON THE DIVINE APPOINTMENT GOD HAS FOR EACH YEAR’S ENCOUNTERS.

If you plan to join us, prepare to have your perspectives on faith and life recalibrated, as you become part of a travelling community who through a wondrous exploration of history and culture will encounter the revitalizing truths of God¹s historical master plan. In short, this is more than a program featuring a cool trip to Europe. It is an intensely spiritual and life-affirming experience.

Please note that students earn a minimum of 12 credits by choosing at least three courses from the following Comparative Religion & Philosophy (CR+P) course list:

  • CR+P - Art Studio 12 (with Europe Trip)
  • CR+P - Christian Studies 12 (with Europe Trip)
  • CR+P - Comparative Cultures 12 (with Europe Trip)
  • CR+P - Philosophy 12 (with Europe Trip)
  • CR+P - World Religions 12 (with Europe Trip)

Each study/travel course combo is designed to best fit each student's particular interests and transcript needs.

Tentative Dates: 12 days in the last three weeks of March 2020.

Program Fee: $4000.00

  • A verbal commitment is required by October 10, 2019

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!

Our five-day voyage will embark/disembark at the Inner Harbour of Victoria BC, and travel through the beautiful Gulf Islands. Our learning camp will provide experiential learning, 'trainees' (both young people and adult chaperones), operate the ship with professional crew-members as their guides. It is awe-inspiring for a young person to take the helm of a 138-foot, 175-ton tall ship! No previous sailing experience is necessary.
