Life-Changing Experiences

For over 60 years Adventure Unlimited has accomplished its mission of “Opening Windows to God” by providing life-changing experiences to Christian Science youth and their families. An important way to keep young people and even adults engaged in Christian Science is to provide opportunities to live it. We support this concept through the programs of two distinct divisions – the A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound.

Adults and youth come to the A/U Ranches year round to enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing, white water rafting, horses, hiking, a challenging multi-level ropes course, and so much more. The loving and inspiring atmosphere at the Ranches helps to cultivate a confidence and develop moral courage. Followers of all faiths are welcome to engage in Ranch activities through our adult and family programs, special events, and the 100 Elk Outdoor Center.

While you may go to the A/U Ranches for one of a kind outdoor experiences, DiscoveryBound (DB) Outreach comes to you in your community with events for youth, their families, and friends. Activities support an inspirational environment where everyone relates, based on the shared values of Christian Science. The DB National Leadership Council (NLC) offers teen leadership training based on a Biblical model of service to God and mankind. In the NLC, teens belong to a community of like-minded thinkers that support global issues. And DB Compass offers 10th-12th graders year-long spiritual exploration through monthly video web-chats, three retreats, and great friendships.

Through the A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound programs, Adventure Unlimited is committed to providing activities that further individual growth in Christian Science and build a sense of community that blesses mankind.
