Packing for a Wildnerness Expedition

Nate Hausman, director of Adirondack programs writes:

The end of the school year means the beginning of the La Vida Expeditions season. Seventy-three Gordon students began their La Vida experience last night and this morning, joined by 18 La Vida leaders, or Sherpas as they are known on trip. The nine groups will all begin their 12-day wilderness trip here on campus with time spent on the ropes course.

Following the ropes course, the groups drive to La Vida’s base camp property in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. La Vida owns 75 acres just outside of Lake Placid, home of the 1930 and 1982 winter Olympics.

Groups spend the next nine days traveling through the largest state park in the continental U.S., either backpacking or canoeing. 2009 marks La Vida’s 39th summer of ministry in the ADKs. Please pray for all the students and staff as they journey into the wilderness to hear God’s still small voice.
