The theme for Adventure Camp this year was Mighty Men and Women. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide recordings of the Christian Living classes due to the remoteness of the camp from civilization (although that’s the whole point!), but below are the notes that the speakers used to present their classes. We hope you enjoy them!
Adventure camp represents the highlight of the summer for those who attend. A lot of preparation goes into the experience to ensure that everyone enjoys it to the maximum. We’re happy to be able to share the general itinerary with you all (a more detailed version will be sent to attendees). It’s sure to be an exciting and challenging year!
All those planning to attend the Adventure Camp at Mount Rainier need to bring a backpack in addition to a small daypack. Please bring both.
All those planning to attend the Adventure Camp at Mount Rainier, please add a small daypack to your packing list.
Ascending to 14, 410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. As a stratovolcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S.A. spawning six major rivers. Towering over the heart of the Cascade Range, this mighty mountain is viewable from nearly every corner of the state. The park encompasses 236,381 acres including more than 300 lakes and more than 100 waterfalls! From deep old-growth forests in low valley bottoms to the frosty summit of the peak you will experience an array of terrain ranging. Here you will find wildflower meadows that John Muir called the most superb subalpine gardens that he’d ever encountered. After spending 5 days in the backcountry we’ll raft the White Salmon River which offers some of the best class III-IV rapids in the west (including rapids like S-turn, Top-Drop, The Flume, Bomber’s Drop and more)! The water is gin-clear and the rapids are big and numerous. This is an Adventure Trip you will not want to miss!
