What Our Guests Are Saying

“Loved every minute!”
Scott P
Geneva, Illinois
“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...”
“Awesome Troop Experience!”
Jim W
Mississippi
“We took our troop from Mississippi to Journey Quest in August 2015...This was a totally awesome time. We whitewater rafted, rock climbed, kayaked rapids and summited Commanche Peak. This was an wonder time with life memories for my son and myself. Kirby spent some time as a cook, so the meals were fabulous...he added to right amount of pizzazz to take them over the top...I want to go back.” Read Full Review
“This week was really life changing!”
Lucy
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!”

“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!”
“I learned so much about myself, God, and Life.”
Maddy K
Geneva, Illinois
“I loved how personable Journey Quest's guides were. I had a great time bonding with them and I will truly miss them. Rock Climbing was my favorite activity and I learned so much about trust and pushing my limits. I learned so much about myself, God, and Life. I wish I could stay forever! :-)”

What to Expect

Fully customize our Outdoor Adventure Combo for your group

Ministry Content

Our guided Outdoor Adventure Combos are designed to bring the focus to Jesus Christ. Mornings begin with breakfast and time to be alone with Jesus at our basecamp. Throughout the day, engage in deep spiritual conversation with your guide as you enjoy the exciting adventure for the day. Our guides love to use God’s creation as a foundation for their teachings and will share several Spiritual Analogies throughout the week using the wilderness and the activities as a tool. Evenings are spent together around a campfire as we worship and grow, learning from God’s word with a message prepared for you by one of our guides.

Our guides have a true heart for Christ and are intentional about making Him known. The activities, schedule, and spiritual content of these Colorado combo trips are fully customizable to the meet needs of your group.

Camping Location

Our Outdoor Adventure Combos are a basecamp style trip, staying at one camping location and heading out each day for activities. We have three camping options available for our combo trips:

Improved Campground

Spend the week camping right behind our Royal Gorge Headquarters. This camping location is a private commercial campground with flush toilets and showers on site. Electricity is available to charge camera batteries. Being a commercial campground, there is a lot of vehicle and foot traffic in and around the campground. Due to all the activity, this may not be ideal for those looking for a backcountry experience.

Forest Service Campground

Spend the week at an established campground along the river or in the mountains. These camping locations have pit-toilets and no running water. With a more wilderness setting, these locations are typically farther removed from any major highways and don’t see as much vehicle or foot traffic as our improved campground option.

Dispersed Camping

Spend the week camping in the wilderness. These camping locations do not have any toilets or running water. We bring a portable toilet to use throughout the week while at these camping locations. Experience the great outdoors as you wake up in the peaceful backcountry of the Colorado Mountains. With plenty of room to spread out, hang hammocks, and explore, this is a true wilderness experience.
