Week 1: Adventure

The first session in the High School Program. Unplug and go on an adventure! Two college-aged mentors will guide campers to Snoqualmie Pass where campers will bike, swim, hike, explore, and learn about faith and themselves. SAMBICA will partner with Compass Outdoor Adventures to lead in portions of the off camp adventures. Each of their guides maintain Wilderness First Aid Certification and are well experienced in guiding youth through outdoor recreational activities. Half of the campers will begin the week at SAMBICA, while the other half will begin away from camp doing the adventure activities and will end their week at SAMBICA for team building, waterfront, and local adventures. 

 Adventures:

  • SAMBICA Challenge Course
  • Biking through the mountains
  • Camping at Snoqualmie Falls
  • Floating down the Snoqualmie River
  • Rock Climbing at Torguson Park

Week 2: Serve

The second session in the High School Leadership Program. After completing the Adventure portion of the program, campers will put what they learned into action! Continuing to build deep relationships with college-aged mentors, campers get a sense of what it means to serve humbly, as Jesus served, by serving at SAMBICA. Each day will consist of daily quiet time, group reflection, service projects, night games and inspiring speakers. Students will earn up to 30 hours of community service while completing this week in the program.
