How does an adventure that involves scaling up a rock face, hearing the wind whistle past your face, having rushing water push your adrenaline, and experiencing the wonder of God’s Creation all in one week sound?
Genesis is a weeklong co-ed program for campers who have completed Grade 8 and is designed to take you out of your comfort zone and into the wilderness as God created it. The small group setting at Genesis is intended to create a more intense program that puts a focus on community and teamwork.
The program begins with registering at Pioneer before heading out with our tents and gear to our base camp in the Ottawa Valley where we will camp out under the star and where the real adventure begins. You will then take part in a variety of experiences from mountain biking and white water rafting to rock climbing and horseback riding. Every activity is designed to give you an incredible experience and the opportunity to be challenged and to grow – socially, physically, and spiritually into a deeper understanding of and relationship with God.
Each day campers will also have the opportunity to explore their faith, ask tough questions about life, and further discover the person God created them to be.
So if you’re looking for a thrilling experience that will stretch you personally and physically, and grow you spiritually… this may be your beginning… this is your genesis!
Prerequisites: You must have completed Grade 8 to register. You must be able to swim, ride a bike and be ready for new and exciting things!
