We offer week long to multi week wilderness experiences for youth ages 9-18 with a focus on faith formation and personal development. These programs challenge, equip and empower youth to grow and mature.
Our adult wilderness programs present the opportunity to step away from the busyness of schedules and complexities of life and are sure to leave you feeling refreshed, restored, refocused and rejuvenated!
WILDERNESS LEADER INTERNSHIP
Our Wilderness Leader Internship (WLI) is an intensive experience in wilderness leadership that will enable you to disciple, equip and empower others in the wilderness classroom. This internship will allow you to grow and be formed as you prepare to intentionally invest yourself in others.
We design and lead custom programs for leadership teams, church groups, team experiences, camps, schools, gap year programs and groups like yours! We would love to partner with you.
We look for humble, responsibility-hungry and self-aware Jesus followers to join us on our Summer Team. If you are seeking an opportunity to serve and desire to be sharpened as a leader, consider applying for one of our Summer Team positions.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
I learned that even when you're alone, even alone in the wilderness, God is still with you and you have Him with you everywhere you go.
It was challenging to try new things and step outside of my comfort zone, but it was cool to push myself and see how strong I actually am and how much I can actually do.
2022 ACT FIVE
I am never going to forget all the great memories and the friends I made on this trip!
God really used this experience to shift my perspective, and it's making me anticipate more alone time with Him.
2023 COLDWATER COMMUNITY EVENTS
In June 2023, we hosted our first-ever Paddle-a-Thon Fundraising Event! 40 participants enjoyed an adventurous day of paddling down southern Ontario’s Grand River. Participants raised funds to make transformational wilderness experiences possible for those requiring financial assistance.
In November 2023, we hosted our third annual Fall Banquet. Guests enjoyed gathering as a community, eating good food, and hearing about the positive impact in our students' lives. Our banquet was a night of gratitude and celebration, and we are hopeful for the ways God will use this banquet to expand ministry in the year ahead.
