Christians and non-Christians benefit from having a place to have fun, connect, deepen friendships, and participate in their adventure sport of choice with others in a safe, organized manner.
Relationships are more easily formed and strengthened through activities based on common interests.
Men who have a difficult time connecting in traditional church environments connect well with others while participating in activities they enjoy.
Physical exercise and challenge bonds people together promoting laughter, serving of one another, the building of memories, common language, trusting of one-another, and a non-threatening environment that encourages transparency.
Accomplishing shared goals & challenges like climbing Half Dome or riding a Century brings a camaraderie and bond to groups.
A family that accomplishes a challenge or experiences a new adventure will forever mark a moment in time that will be a highlight to relive over and over. These experiences will also become a mental goal for the children to duplicate with their own families in the future.
