Testimonials"David and Colleen run a fantastic program! I have seen first-hand the fruit of their ministry and highly recomend this company. Your children will be challenged spiritually and physically. They will return home with new friendships and a sense of self-worth, confidence, and a deeper understanding of their faith in God."Mark Mosley
Testimonials"I have had the pleasure of working for both these amazing people in seperate capacities. David with summer camp and Colleen with youth ministry in a church setting. Both are wonderful, professional, motivated, loving, caring and faithful people. I cannot hold these two to a higher standard than they already hold themselves to. Anyone would be lucky to learn and grow from them."Rachel Faulkner Brown
Testimonials"I wanted HIGH ADVENTURE for my kids and Created for Adventure is what I found. Are you wanting a Christ-centered, adventure trip for your kids? These are the people doing it. This is rare...there are other companies doing this but not with Jesus at the helm, creation at their back, contemplation, identity, cooking and sharing meals together, being quiet in His presence. I was so excited to find Created for Adventure. These people are the real deal!"
