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.

    (NLC) was – and is – an experience that I carry with me at every point. It has forced me to grow, it has shaped me, and it has opened the door to so many amazing experiences.

    I so look forward to being able to chaperone as a way to give back and stand witness to the same growth in others that I experienced. I’m still learning, as we all are, but I owe so much of who I am to DiscoveryBound.
