Venture Out Trips
Come Venture Out with Kenbrook! Our Venture Out program carries on the rich legacy of wilderness tripping as part of the mission of Kenbrook to facilitate a closer connection to God, self, others, and nature. The purpose of the Venture Out arm of Kenbrook Bible Camp is to learn and discover even more about who God is through His created world and through the experiences we have on each trip.
Our trips are staffed by leaders with a passion for ministering to kids in a wilderness setting. Each leader is trained specifically to lead wilderness trips safely, taking care of details such as pre-trip scouting, equipment care, nutrition, first aid, and packing. In addition, the small group size allows these leaders to invest in the relationship of each camper.
NEW for 2018!! Venture Out will now be taking day trips - which means that you get the best of both residential and trip camp! Each day campers will eat breakfast and dinner at Kenbrook. Each evening campers will participate in the evening program games, worship and teaching together. But, during the day Venture Out Campers will be having incredible experiences by leaving the site and having opportunity to be involved in one of the exciting programs below!
*Venture Out Campers will have one overnight campout that coincides with Residential Camps campout night as much as possible.
