Summer Events

Summer Hikes are geared towards youth ages 12-18 and serve as the core of our wilderness ministry. Although we pick a specific theme each summer, all of our events touch on the Christian core issues of servant leadership, the body of Christ, overcoming challenges, self-worth, and unconditional love.  Wilderness Trail's process is based on experiential learning and the belief that often faith is "caught more than taught." 

Throughout our events, youth are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and experience the Christian journey at a deeper level. Summer Hikes take place annually during the months of June through August. The information below introduces and guides you through our summer ministry. If you are interested in learning more or signing up for an event, contact our Executive Director Matthew Blackburn.

What to Bring



Trail has been an experience where God continues to reveal truth to me. I have learned that it is truly better to give than receive, through my experiences of helping others before myself on Trail. I also know now that God won’t always take us off the mountain of our problems, but give us the strength we need to get over them. God revealed His goodness to me this year and it brought me to tears, tears of pure joy. I hope everyone can get a chance to learn through the experience of Wilderness Trail.
