Join us for hiking retreat that’s all about interior and exterior adventures. That means exercising our minds and hearts by asking and contemplating the big questions – but not leaving our bodies unchallenged on the sidelines. Praying and hiking through God’s original cathedral of the outdoors can be a catalyst for engaging, challenging, and integrating body and soul. Allowing conversations to unfold naturally around a fire and over the course of several days gives the heart and mind time to mull things over and go deeper. This hiking trip retreat will engage the whole you.
Launching from basecamp at Tettagouche State Park on the North Shore of Lake Superior, this entry-level hiking retreat is open to young men and women in high school and early college. It will be led by Jen Messing, founder of Into the Deep. Since 2012, Jen has led several outdoor retreats per year for youth and adults. Jen received a Master of Theological Studies from Ave Maria University’s Institute for Pastoral Theology and is a graduate of the NOLS Pacific Northwest Outdoor Educator course. She will be joined by a team of young adult leaders and our own Sarah Kalonick.
