The program will introduce students to doing ministry in outdoor adventures through training, lectures, reading, and hands-on experience. They will learn what it means to guide people in the outdoors safely through risk management as they use outdoor adventures as a way to encourage growth in individual lives. Backpacking, basic rock climbing, and intro to mountaineering are some of the main skills that are focused on during this first part of the program.
