This two night, three day outdoor education adventure includes both small group and large group sessions . Hydrology lessons, Rock climbing, horseback riding, experiential music and math, camping and hiking have been worked into the event schedule. Lodging is in base camp wall tents and the yurt.

Campfire devotions, singing, and solo as well as partner prayer time help participants reflect on all aspects of the adventure.
