Thank you for Celebrating with Us!
Thank you to everyone who joined us on May 20, 2021 for our virtual event to support A/U Ranches camperships and DiscoveryBound Scholarships! This incredible group of supporters helped raise over $278,600 for the Adventure Unlimited community, which will allow over 150 participants and campers to have transformative experiences through our programs in 2021.
You can watch the replay below, which includes these highlights:
- A report from the executive director, Gina Lindquist-Bailey, on the blessings of 2020 and what’s ahead in 2021
- A video on how Adventure Unlimited executed its mission of Opening Windows to God in 2020 through community voices

- Participant and seasonal staff stories from the A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council
- Appearance and alumni memory from actor/director/producer Peter Horton

Here’s what some participants shared about the event:
I don’t know when I have been so proud or moved by AU and all its incredible history and present power to transform lives.
It was polished, professional, informative, warm, friendly, inspiring etc. etc. but MOST OF ALL, we “felt” it, we “felt” what it is that makes the ranch/NLC/etc. experience so meaningful and special and impactful to our young people! (I have to admit my husband and I did need the Kleenex at a few moments!) We were proud to be new first-time donors. We appreciate so much what the A/U leadership/staff/volunteers etc. do, and most of all, their/your commitment to make a place where our youth can experience “windows to God”
It stirred over 50 years of impactful memories of my involvement with A/U starting with the early A/U chapters when I was in high school all the way to today as a modest contributor.
Everyone went above and beyond, and I was weeping my way through it all! Thank you everyone for your moving stories about all that AU does and is!! It was wonderful!!
If you didn’t donate and would like to, we still have other funding needs that will bless the thousands of members of the Adventure Unlimited community:
