2018 HOPE WORLDWIDE ADVENTURE CORPS
HOPEww Adventure Corps - Alaska

Type of site: HOPEww Adventure Corps is open to campus students ages 18-24. (Applicants must be able to hike 10-20 miles a day.)

Program Description:This new program is not a HOPEww Volunteer Corps/HOPE Youth Corps – it’s HOPEww Adventure Corps!

The Adventure Corps is an experiential learning and leadership training program. Although there is a service component for two days where participants will mentor Alaskan under-served youths, this is primarily a servant leadership training program where the participants will be challenged spiritually, physically and mentally through an experience like no other. As Jesus went into the wilderness in Mark 4, we too will venture into the wild to discover a fuller image of God, his majestic nature and ourselves so that we can better serve the world around us and bring hope to a hurting world.

The goal of this trip is to create leaders of faith through outdoor survival training - including a 7-day backpacking trip in the Alaska wilderness. This program will be very challenging. Participants must be in good physical shape and able to hike 10-20 miles a day.

Dates: June 18 - July 1, 2018

Price (in US dollars): $1,500 plus flights

Deadline for registration and payment: May 1, 2018
