What Our Guests Are Saying

“Excellent Family Adventure”
Scott W

“We did a five night group excursion with Journey Quest and had the time of our life. We did three days of rafting, one day of rock climbing and one day of alpine hiking. What a great time. The staff was excellent, helpful and professional. We really appreciated their commitment to safety. For a short rafting trip or a longer group activity, I highly recommend Journey Quest.” Read Full Review
“This week was really life changing!”
Geneva, Illinois
“Journey Quest's guides were really open about talking about their passions and personal faith. They also really tried to get to know us each personally with a lot of enthusiasm which was really welcoming...I enjoyed Rock Climbing the most. I learned that you can be surprised about how far you can push and challenge yourself even if you think you can't do it...It has helped me realize how important it is to remove yourself to really focus on your faith. I liked not having my phone and the time spent together...Thank you for everything this week. It was really life changing!”
“Loved every minute!”

“I've been on many trips where the trip leaders just do what they need to and don't interact with the group, but that was not the case here. The Journey Quest crew we had was awesome and became part of our crew instantly! We had a few students declare their faith in Christ on this trip and that doesn't happen without the right atmosphere and you guys did a great job of fostering that atmosphere...”
“This trip blew away my expectations!”

“The food was AMAZING! The guides were all very relate-able and easy going. They challenged our group, pushing us out of our comfort zones. Every single guide always had a smile of their face...I've build so many new relationships and I felt like I found my place in the world...Colorado! I liked all the activities, but I liked the guides the best. Great people, personalities, and sense of humor...This trip blew away my expectations and I'd love to come back someday (or next week).”

“Journey Quest is the first Christian program I feel I can recommend to others. I felt my kids and I were always in competent hands; even the "dangerous" activities felt safe and professionally managed. Excellent ministry focus throughout! Sincerely appreciated the kind and infection enthusiasm. I'm truly grateful and humbled by the energy and intention I received from each and every Journey Quest associate!”

Ministry Content

The Bighorn Overnight is designed to bring the focus to Jesus Christ. Throughout the day, enjoy the beauty of the canyon as you engage in deep spiritual conversation with your guide. Using the river, rafting, and creation as tools, our guides love to share spiritual analogies with everyone in their boat throughout the day. At camp, gather around a campfire as we worship and grow, learning from God’s word with a message prepared for you by one of our guides. The morning begins with a hearty breakfast and time to be alone with Jesus before the second day of rafting.

Our guides have a true heart for Christ and are intentional about making Him known. The schedule and spiritual content of this Bighorn Overnight trip is fully customizable to the meet needs of your group.
