​Are you ready to take on the wilderness? Discover what it truly means to be a leader, and put "feet" to your faith as we backpack together. Learn basic backcountry camping and wilderness travel skills in a breathtakingly beautiful pristine environment. Rock climbing and whitewater paddling options can also be added to this track.


Our mission track provides hands on service opportunities to the local community in the Taos area. Your group will have the chance to experience 2-3 days of the same amazing adventures as our adventure track, and also 2-3 days of service projects.


Join us for 4 days of adventure programs designed to challenge your group and help them grow closer to God and closer to each other. Hiking, climbing, rappeling, and whitewater paddling in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Gorge promise to be experiences that your group will never forget. This track includes a rest day with multiple recreation options.
