Walkabout at Camp Eagle and Glorieta
Walkabout is a life-changing, Christian Gap-Year for college-age students offered both at Camp Eagle in the Texas Hill Country and Glorieta in the southern Rockies. The program is built with service, study, wilderness adventure, and community discipleship. In a nutshell, Walkabout is about discipleship. Discipleship is the life faith lives though simple obedience. This is the nature of the Walkabout experience: not to make you disciples for the time you’re with us, but to amplify and simplify the call; every day, to bring you a step toward following Christ in simple obedience that you may be a disciple for life. Service, Study, and Outdoor Adventure are the tools we use. Checkout all the details online or email Scott Chapman.
