May 20-22, Shenandoah, VA
As a young university chaplain, Karol Wojtyla (St. John Paul II) invited young men and women to go hiking and kayaking, while forming them in the Catholic faith. He called this community his “Środowisko.” You’re invited to do the same as we hike, kayak (or canoe), and tent camp in the Shenandoah Valley—all while growing in faith and friendship.
Save the Date – Details Coming Soon!
Our outdoor excursions are based on the same principles as our study-abroad programs: God, community and conversation.
We help you grow closer to God by exploring his beautiful creation and sending your prayers to Him at daily outdoor Mass and prayers.
The very nature of our outdoor excursions facilitates friendship – shared experiences and fun times!
We engage in thoughtful conversation based on the life and teachings of Pope Saint John Paul II, all the while striving to become saints!
