The COLS program is designed for physically active, high character kids. The intent is to provide kids with an outdoor adventure, where they learn technical outdoor skills, learn about leadership (with an emphasis on leading yourself), grow in self awareness, strengthen their faith in God, and have a good time.
COLS has been running outdoor based trips since 1999. Typically trips are 8-10 days. Occasionally, COLS has run specialty trips (like white water kayak instructional trips) that have been as short as three days. Group sizes are small, generally 6-8 kids with 2 staff.
