Welcome home

Your playground

One of the best things about the semester is living right in the heart of the mountains. Lectures and chapels take place right next to the lake, and every week we get out exploring all there is to take advantage of in the Sierra Nevada mountains. 


You'll spend time hiking, climbing, skiing, biking, kayaking, backpacking, and more. You don't need to know how to do these things already. Most students have not done these things before they come! This is about creating a space where you can get close to the beauty of creation and your own body, exploring nature with your friends, learn new things, and experiencing its special wonder up close in your new home.  This can be as easy as finding favorite reading spots in the forest, or sunset viewing rocks down by the waterfront!
