An intensive, intentional experience for high school students

August 2–August 23, 2018

Dive into intentional community with a small group of fellow high school students at Summit, a three-week experience in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Housed at Gordon’s wilderness-based study center, you’ll complete a biblical studies course with Gordon faculty, embark on a wilderness expedition and participate in local service projects. And along the way, you’ll develop deep friendships and be challenged in your relationship with Christ.
