In the Northern Rockies, God’s power and majesty are evident everywhere you look. Wilderness settings are the places we can best see His creation and immerse ourselves in the Lord’s splendor. The trips are designed to expose young people to the beauty of His creation and use the challenges of these outdoor experiences as vessels to present the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
Given the mental health challenges youth are experiencing with the Covid-19 situation worldwide, getting them outside to experience fresh air and freedom is even more critical!
The trips are physically and emotionally challenging! Most young people don’t get away from their comfort zones, online and video gaming, and cell phones enough to realize what their bodies, hearts, and minds are really capable of. Lat45 leaders will push participants (within reason) to accomplish physical feats that will build character and help kids understand what a healthy, exercise filled lifestyle can produce.
New this past year, we are also implementing even more skills and subjects into each excursion, including survival and life skills, naturalist/botany topics, Leave No Trace principals, and more. Leaders are competent and capable, and that expertise can be shared and learned!
What WE DO
Life skills and self defense
Survival and wilderness training
a trip LOOK LIKE?
THE first day WILL LOOK LIKE THIS:
Meet with the group
Get oriented with your gear and pack the van
Drive to the trailhead
Pre-hike safety briefing and backcountry orientation
Leave No Trace training
Hike into the first night's camp spot
Set up camp
Dinner with a bear safety training
Evening Bible study
The next three-four days on the trail will consist of hiking, Bible studies, self reflection time to journal, setting up and taking down camp, and campfire cooking. Other things you may do are fish, summit a peak, swim, and make new friends.
Lat45 Adventure Ministries wilderness backpacking trips are the opportunity of a lifetime for young people to come to a true understanding of who they are, who God is, and how their lives fit into His ultimate plan! We are so excited to see each participant grow in their personal walk with Jesus Christ.
