Opening Windows to God

For 60 years, Adventure Unlimited has provided enriching activities for thousands of Christian Science young people and their families

The practical and effective application of Christian Science is as much a part of our mission today as it was under Cap and Marianne Andrew’s leadership 60 years ago. Whether it’s at the A/U Ranches, DiscoveryBound Outreach events or the National Leadership Council’s program for high school teens, we seek to provide inspiring recreational, leadership, service, educational and social activities for Christian Scientists and their friends, to nurture healing and a sense of community, in an atmosphere conducive to practical reliance on Christian Science.

    In Their Own Words

    The trip was an amazing two weeks with my NLC class, growing closer to my friends, exploring new environments, learning more about leadership and putting this knowledge into action, challenging myself and ultimately growing closer to God

    In Their Own Words

    Growing up in England was never easy. I went a lot of places, and I met a lot of people, but I never fit in. There was always something wrong with me. At the age of 12, I had never had a friend.

    The second I met up with the group, I felt so much love and acceptance. It was my first time skiing and I was a little nervous. I felt like I could do anything in the atmosphere DiscoveryBound created.

    In Their Own Words

    I felt depressed and so unsatisfied with the person I was becoming. Austin [his counselor] told me that to find satisfaction in life, all we have to do is seek to glorify God. That night changed my life.
