Worshiping at the Cross

Real values. Godly values.

While the program is undergirded by Biblical values and reflects a Christian worldview, our goal is for parents and families of every faith to be able to place their boys in a youth program that endeavors to provide moral consistency and ethical integrity in its adult leaders. We welcome boys whose parents are seeking a faith-based outdoor adventure program that places an emphasis on character development, leadership, and moral purity, and who aspire to live in accordance with the values expressed in the program’s Oath and Creed.

Leadership. For sure.

Our program helps build the character of young men with the intention of developing them into servant leaders modeled after Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We purposefully include leadership development training for the boys throughout the program. As they grow and mature we provide real opportunities for them to lead other young men.
