Compass Program Details

The 2019 Compass Program is from June 26–July 25. The program breakdown is as follows:

  • June 26: Arrival & Registration
  • June 27–July 6: Wilderness Expedition
  • July 7–July 13: Theology Expedition
  • July 14–July 22: Ministry Expedition 
  • July 23–July 25: Closing Days

The application deadline for this year's program is March 31, 2019. Visit our application page for more information on how to apply. 

Students have the option to fundraise for their trip using a personalized web page we set up through the Compass website. 

Fundraising goals differ by location. The travel expenses are higher for a trip to Iceland than for a trip to Portland, so by extension, the fundraising amounts for each trip are different.

For the Portland trip, the fundraising goal is $2,400. For the Iceland trip, the fundraising goal is $3,600. These costs are all-inclusive and cover all transportation, food, housing, equipment and curriculum for the month. 

Note that the funds you raise for your Compass trip are tax-deductible and thus non-refundable.

We do our best to make Compass as affordable as possible. These fundraising goals are significantly lower than what is needed to cover the cost of the entire program.
