Compass is a wilderness experience for high school students with a strong emphasis on leadership development and spiritual formation. The Compass experience invites students to explore a deeper commitment to their faith and community, and to challenge themselves with the risks and choices involved in a remote backcounty adventure. Compass takes place in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and is a true wilderness experience. Students will face problems to solve and experiences that push them outside their physical, mental, and spiritual comfort zones. They will develop new friendships as they make decisions and practice leadership and responsibility to one another. They will also have time to journal, spend time in quiet, and read their Bible and reflect beside a lake, waterfall, or stream. There will be time to sit by the campfire, share stories, and swim in the pristine water of northern lakes.
