Creatio Community Expereinces

What are they all about?

Creatio Community Experiences are free and open to all young adults (18-39). We are striving to bring our mission of encountering the beauty of creation and the Creator to as many people as possible. These allow us to do that by gathering as friends on local hikes, backpacking excursions, campouts, and other adventures. The only requirement is an open heart and a desire to encounter beauty!

These Experiences differ from our standard Creatio Experiences in that they are not formally guided by Creatio staff. Instead, volunteers, missionaries, and friends all offer a helping hand in making these Experiences happen and costs for gas, food, etc. are split between one another at the end of the trip. The Experience organizer may screen participants to ensure they have the necessary skills, experience, and/or gear necessary to participate.
