Wanting to Learn?
If you enjoy adventure, adrenaline, and love finding God in creation then Outdoor Pursuits is definitely the right stream for you to join!
With our Outdoor Pursuits stream, we do a wide range of activities around Northland, which allows our students to connect with God in a completely different way than they would in the classroom. Whether it be being stunned by his amazing creation at the top of a hike, being forced to trust in his goodness as you bungee jump off a bridge, or just hearing him speak to you through the beauty of nature, we want to help our students connect with God in all sorts of different ways.
What to Bring
Make sure you bring active wear, swimwear, shoes to hike in (whether they be real hiking boots or just runners), a water bottle, and a readiness to try new things!

My DTS at Zion completely transformed me. I came here broken and hurt. But Gods overwhelming, reckless LOVE absolutely healed my heart. - , Sweden.Ida Dolk
I came here to find God and to know Jesus better . I wanted to know what my identity is in God. In Him we are pure. God is a loving father and he has only loving ways for us. We don't have to be afraid, because God cares about us and He loves us and He wants a relationship with us! To come here was the best decision, I ever made.Delia Koller
