Theology of Adventure Camp

Theology of Adventure Banner

Each one of us is made for adventure—a life lived boldly in pursuit of ultimate truth and goodness, uninhibited by fear, hesitation, or self-centeredness. It’s a radical way of life, but it’s the only one we’re interested in. The Theology of Adventure Week is aimed at exploring this bold outlook on life through two sections: the first is a classroom-based experience on Carroll’s campus, and the second is a wilderness adventure set against the Western Montana backcountry. Come and experience what Carroll College's driving adventurous philosophy is all about.

Perfect blend of rigorous wilderness immersion and campus-centered intellectual engagement.
