We’re following Pope Saint John Paul II’s example and heading out in the wilderness to find God.
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!
