Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To facilitate transformational learning that strengthens relationships, deepens faith, and builds compassion through Christ centered outdoor adventure, service, and experiential education.
Summit Adventure is "Adventure That Changes Lives." For thirty years we have used the wilderness as a tool to challenge people to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Summit offers families, adults, youth, and groups a rare opportunity to leave their "comfort zone" behind and experience change in a way that helps them clearly define their identity, source of security, purpose and direction in life. By combining radical acceptance of each individual with unprecedented challenge we provide an environment where God can move people beyond their self-perceived limitations - whether they be spiritual, physical, mental, or emotional. Summit is AMGA accredited and offers summer and winter courses in the Sierra Nevada and South America, as well as a semester long accredited service and adventure program for University students.
Summit Adventure programs appropriately challenge each participant as a whole person. Growth and change may result from: the physical challenge of climbing a peak, rappelling, or hiking; the mental challenge of cross-country route finding; the emotional challenge of being vulnerable with others during a dialogue; the spiritual challenge of listening to God during the unique times set aside for prayer and reflection.
Summit is "Adventure That Changes Lives." and is about transferring insights and lessons learned into action in our day to day walk with Christ. This process of transferring insights gained into every day life is what differentiates a Summit course from a "vacation" in the traditional sense. Summit provides the catalyst for significant and lasting spiritual and personal growth.
