Every course in our program is built on 3 main pillars
1. What does God have to say about this? We dive into Scriptural teachings to understand God’s creation and plan.
2. How does God make it work? We analyze the beautiful science of the course subject.
3. What does God want you to do with this? We bring it home as we challenge students to think about the practical ways they are being inspired to take these teachings and apply them to their lives.
Students learn they are made with unique gifts from God to offer the world. These gifts are realized through a low ropes challenge course, survival activities, Adoration, daily Mass, and hikes.
The JPII Outdoor Lab Leadership camp is customizable to your group’s needs. We work with you by learning your group’s specific struggles and how they may need to grow in leadership and as a group.
