Adult Wilderness COURSES

wilderness leadership expedition (WLE)
AGE 18+

The Wilderness Leadership Expedition (WLE) is our cornerstone wilderness course. WLE is designed for people who are serious about their faith and want to explore leadership, community, and service through the challenges and risks of the wilderness classroom. During WLE you will travel through some incredibly beautiful yet challenging northern wilderness. Spiritual disciplines, wilderness solitude, and opportunities to lead are all core to this program. Within a community of peers, you will spend time thinking about God’s work of restoration, your personal direction, and intentional community living. WLE will let you explore how you can use your gifts, education, passions, career, and choices to make a Kingdom impact. Come join us on this life-changing wilderness adventure!

​This course is an immersion into wilderness leadership. During this expedition, you will learn valuable interpersonal skills and become a valued member of a purposeful and intentional community. You can expect to gain experience with backpacking, flatwater canoeing, map and compass navigation, shelter building, campcraft, Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, risk management, and backcountry meal preparation. These technical program elements are paired with intentional reflective components, leading to new learning, transferable insights, and significant life growth.

You will have time to reflect on your season of life, engage in meaningful conversation, and deepen your relationship with God. You will get wet, muddy, and most likely sweaty.
