The event will be held outdoors, in the elements - rain, snow, or shine. Instructors will lead the participants on a predetermined route and conduct team and leadership skill building exercises, Bible teaching, and object lessons in character development. This event is designed to push young men to the end of themselves in order to build strength of character, intestinal fortitude and confidence in Christ to carry them through the toughest of times. That being said, this event is not for everyone. We strongly encourage each participant to honestly evaluate if this event is a good fit for them at this time. If you are not sure, please call Derrick Clark @ 541.633.0110 or email email@example.com and we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.
