Take an Adventure With a Purpose.

At Summit Adventure, we use experiential education, adventure programming, service, and cross-cultural immersion as tools to move individuals and groups out of their comfort zones into more reliance on God and each other.

We have both Open Enrollment Courses and Custom Adventures for parents, youth, young adults and families, as well as a College Semester Abroad program for college students!

Whatever your age, background, or story is, come embark on an adventure with us! Challenge yourself through rock climbing, conquer your fears though rappelling or push yourself to the summit of a subglacial volcano. Regardless of the adventure, we hope to create an unforgettable and transformational experience for you.
