When you backpack at Christikon, you journey into some of the world’s most lovely country. And you journey with others more deeply into the adventure of faith.
Backpacking takes more energy and endurance than on-site camping, but it’s well worth the extra effort. You spend your first and last nights at out main camp. But the rest of the time you are hiking through our mountain wilderness. And you find a special life together: worship and Bible study are woven together with the exhilaration of high country camping.
Two trained counselors join your group as guides and program leaders. Christikon provides you with backpacks, tents, cooking gear, and food. You supply your own sleeping bag, hiking boots, rain gear, and clothing. Groups are limited to ten guests (7 days, 6 nights ― for youth completing grades 9-12). Minimum group size is 6 guests; maximum group size is 12 guests. Up to six trails groups may be out at the same time.
