Wilderness Explorer Trips! Experiencing Christ and His Creation!
Camp Living Water's High Trek Adventures is a Outdoor Recreational Program with the goal of sharing Christ Jesus with Young men and Women through spending time in His Wonderful Creation! We currently offer Back Packing and Canoing Trips for guys and gals ages 13-16. All High Trek Adventure trips place emphasis on Spirtiual Growth by spending time with Jesus at the start of each day and throughout the day by reading the Bible, Prayer, and sharing with others in Group Discussions.
Trips for under $250? How is that possible? We are a non-profit, interdenominational, volunteer organizatioin which is how we are able to keep our trip costs low. Our staff are trained in Wilderness First Aid and have experience in outdoor activities and safety procedures. In addition they have gone through CPR training and Basic water safety courses as well as Counselor and Staff training through Camp Living Water. As low as these costs are there are still families who need assistance in paying for these trips. If you are interested in helping send a student on one of these trips or to a regular week of Camp at Camp Living Water you can simply send your donations to us designated to the Camper Scholarship Fund!
