Allegheny Outback! is a six-day adventure program for rising 9th graders to just-graduated high school students. Backpacking, white water canoeing, and rappelling are some of the activities that are woven into a rich, spiritually-focused discussion around a campfire later at night. By placing a spiritual emphasis to those activities, AO! facilitates an environment where teens are taught and challenged to develop their own faith in Christ, rely on Him, exhibit personal responsibility, and work with others. We’ll also examine Scripture on this year’s theme of “Transformed” (Romans 12:2) to discover what that really means as a Christian.
