10,000 FEET is a summer faith adventure led by STM Campus Ministry. Students travel by bus to Houston where they take a flight into Denver followed by a bus ride deep into the Rocky Mountains, away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life. With very little distraction, no cell phones or computers, the 10,000 FEET travelers are left to bask in the beauty of nature, surrounded by a 360 degree panoramic view of God's creations.
This trip is designed to be the time of your life as each day is filled with high adventure, beautiful scenery, team building activities, and reflection and growth in a faith journey with Jesus. Some adventures are white water rafting, canyon climbing, lakeside games, fly fishing, hiking, and adventure racing. Log cabins provide the lodging for the group. A beautiful chapel with huge windows overlooking the mountains provides an evening gathering spot.
Students are led by adult and young adult leaders of the STM Campus Ministry team who have prior summer camp experience. Owner parish youth groups also join in the trip. All activities are guided by experts provided by the camp facility in Colorado.
Ultimately, amidst all of the fun, friendships, and adventure, students are led to Jesus. They learn of His infinite love and have the opportunity to commit to following Christ.
