Church Groups & Ministries
Gospel centered Programming
We love the local church and the opportunity to help organizations facilitate outdoor ministry here in Manitoba. We understand that the natural environment is a wonderful context to connect youth with God and His creation. Transformational experiences are possible when they disconnect from distractions like technology, home conflicts, and burdens of "normal life" and embrace an adventure full of learning and challenge.
Equip Canada is Christ-centered organization committed to empowering and supporting local ministry leaders to provide impactful community services. The Youth Outdoors Project is our initiative to help you engage with local youth through affordable and high quality outdoor events that you can experience alongside them. Nothing creates a lasting impression like a trusted adult
walking through a challenging and rewarding journey with a youth. This is our hope, to enable you to experience adventure with your students.
Our core programs are offered with a Spiritual Formation component led by one of our experienced outdoor ministry leaders or we simply create space for "teachable moments" to be led by your own ministry leaders. Either way, we help prioritize meaningful times of worship, prayer, and teaching throughout your event.
We partner with Wilderland Adventure Company, a local outfitter, to facilitate the Youth Outdoors Project. Wilderland's oversight and leadership help us uphold a professional standard throughout these impactful programs.
Together, we offer the following outdoor programs:
Back to Nature - Outdoor Activity Day Programs (outdoor survival, canoeing, hiking, snowshoeing, etc).
Explorer - Multi-day Camping Programs (Overnight camping with multi-activity events).
Expedition - Wilderness Trips (Canoeing, backpacking, winter trekking).
Connections - Interpretive Programs (local nature study, trapping, socio-historical tours, etc).
Adventure Retreats - Multi-day & multi-activity overnight outdoor adventure & learning trips.
All Youth Outdoors Project programs are open to any youth serving group or organization in need of financial or logistical support to ensure a quality outdoor experience. No one is limited based on gender, age, race, or religious beliefs. We believe in equal opportunity for all youth to participate! We welcome groups from local schools, churches, community clubs/groups, and youth serving agencies.
