Opening Windows to God

For over 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 Andrews’ leadership more than 60 years ago. Whether it’s at the A/U Ranches and its 100 Elk Outdoor Center or in DiscoveryBound’s Outreach, National Leadership Council or Compass programs, we seek to provide recreational adventure, leadership, service, education and community activities that foster spiritual growth and healing in an environment where Christian Science is lived. Adventure Unlimited is an inclusive organization serving the broader Christian Science community, and in that spirit, our programs serve each individual as a child of God and support his or her spiritual growth and healing.

    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

    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.

    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.
