What an honour to have our Zao guides serve moms and sons on a unique retreat! Trevor, one of our guides, Alexis, our intern, and I were able to lead this multi-day alpine camp, giving these great families the gift of adventure. And the gift of time.
I love watching people step away from their comfort boundary, crossing over into the unexpected blessings of a wilderness adventure. Alexis planned and cooked the full-service catering experience, and Trevor led us to the top of a peak on a hot, bluebird day. Highlights from this camp included "duo time" (moms and sons out for an hour together, reading the word and sharing the shade of subalpine tree boughs and a soft carpet of heather), writing our own mountain psalms, watching from a mountain ridge as the sun broke the eastern horizon, and eating wild blueberries. God is good!
