Creation Action "Boot Camps"





AOI's Creation-Action Combo Adventure!


5-Day Creation-Action Combo Rafting/Climbing/Hiking Adventure!

           An Exciting Way to Learn about Creation vs. Evolution


Join veteran Creation teachers, Dave and Mary Jo Nutting, as they team up with Journey Quest for a unique Creation experience. This outdoor learning and rafting adventure on the Arkansas River, Colorado’s most popular whitewater rafting adventure, is something that you, your group or family will never forget! Surrounded by the beauty of God’s world and built upon the strong foundation of God’s Word, this purposeful trip is a perfect way to be equipped to face the onslaught of naturalistic, evolutionary-based worldviews which saturate our society today. The experienced guides for this excursion have a true heart for Christ and will also encourage each person to build a deep and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ!


This 5-day trip begins near Buena Vista with rafting the gorgeous Brown’s Canyon and floats through sections of beginner and intermediate rapids. Along the way expect to try your skills at rock climbing and even climb into the mountains for some amazing alpine hiking with fantastic mountain peak scenery in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.  Finish off by rafting the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. You will have a blast rafting and paddling inflatable kayaks through rapid after rapid of stellar whitewater.  After enjoying each full day in the Colorado Rockies you can relax by the river while our guides treat you to culinary delights. Spend each evening camping under the stars as the river lulls you to sleep. Those wishing to extend their trip can choose an optional Saturday AM raft trip through the famous Royal Gorge with its Class 5 rapids (not for the timid!).


Each morning begins with a time to be alone with Christ, followed by a hearty breakfast while you prepare for another packed day of learning and discussing issues relating to the creation vs. evolution worldviews amidst an enjoyable and wild adventure. Evenings are spent together as we gather around the campfire, worship Jesus, and learn even more about our Lord, Creation, and how to firmly stand on His Word!


This area we will raft through abounds in some of the most amazing geology on this planet –and it fits beautifully with the Creation/Fall/Flood account in the Bible. Each participant will be expected to complete a pre-trip “crash course” on creation via DVD or internet to help them get the most out of the on-site training.
