Crosstraining, Lenoire-Rhyne University & Lutheridge+Lutherock...
Lenoir-Rhyne University and Lutheridge+Lutherock Ministries will be offering Crosstraining, a Christian Outdoor Leadership Expedition, for all current students and incoming freshmen, earning you 3 hours of college credit under HES 140. Crosstraining combines Rock Climbing, Team Building, Backpacking, Whitewater Rafting, and a 30 hour “Solo” self-reflection experience. Crosstraining is three hours of college credit before the Fall 2009 semester begins. During your course you will travel on foot over some of God’s most beautiful country. You’ll learn how to pack all your gear in your backpack, cook a backcountry meal, and camp without leaving a trace.
We’ll start off learning skills for rock climbing such as tying knots, belaying, and rappelling, which fosters trust, confidence, and new skills. We’ll pack up from there and travel in the backcountry learning how to live in the wilderness using only what we have with us.
From there we will take time to learn how to read white water as well as learn paddle strokes and travel on whitewater. You will be emerged in a safe Christian setting where we will discuss leadership, participate in Bible study, and learn more about our Natural Surrounding. You’ll travel deep into the wilderness at the same time, learning how to get along with your peers and become a competent leader, not only in the outdoors but at home.
So here is the deal...
