Summer Trips


Snapshots from NorthBay, ASP, & Beyond


We all need some adventure. It’s necessary to get out of our routines and get some perspective on life. Over the years, trips to places like Appalachia, Montreat in North Carolina, or Young Life’s Beyond Malibu in the wilds of Canada have changed lives, refreshed spirits, and made us grow in ways we could have never imagined.

God promises to find us. Let’s get lost together.

Beyond Malibu – Mountaineering

  • For ages 15 and up (at the time of travel)
  • Thursday, July 26, to Sunday, August 5

This week-long mountaineering trip gives you the chance to get Beyond your normal life and walk into a great adventure. Every Saturday to Saturday trip begins and ends with a night at Beyond’s base camp nestled along the shoreline of the Princess Louisa Inlet. Spend six days and five nights hiking and building friendships like you’ve never had before as you work together to reach the summit of one of British Columbia’s beautiful mountains. Every route is different and some  offer the chance to rock climb, rappel, and peer into ancient crevasses on your way across a glacier. The real adventure, though, is the chance to spend a week finding God in the wonders of His creation and in the faces of your friends. 


Beyond Malibu – Sea Kayaking

  • For ages 15 and up (at the time of travel)
  • Wednesday, August 8, to Friday, August 17

Get Beyond the chaos of life and spend a wondrous week on the water. Beyond Malibu sea kayaking trips begin with a day and a half of training at the landing in Egmont, British Columbia to ensure the trip is awesome and safe. No previous experience is necessary. From there we will journey up the Jervis Inlet, deepen friendships, and take in life as we paddle through rapids, view marine life up close, swim at the base of waterfalls, and explore the breathtaking wilderness. A guide team will keep us safe as we enjoy the wildlife, the campfires, and stars. It’ll be a refreshing week of simplicity, purity, and adventure.
