Ventures at Capernwray Harbour Bible School
Ventures are an invitation to explore some of the world's most beautiful land and sea scales...unparalleled when it comes to ecological variety and diversity. From the mountaintops to the rain forests to the open sea, there is something for everyone! That's an understatement!
Almost like a vacation, Bible School students on Venture.
Venture trips vary in intensity from rigorous to purely relaxational. Transportation, food, equipment, and instructor/guides are included; all you may need to bring (or borrow) is a backpack, sleeping bag and personal items. Devotionals and discussions will be led each day by your guide for the purpose of "Directing your heart toward Jesus"...the focal point of the Bible School year! Each student will have the opportunity to choose one of these weekend trips at Registration. First come first serve!"

The Intent of the Ventures
The first priority is that Jesus Christ be acknowledged and responded to in faith and obedience as He is revealed in creation, in the written Word and fellowship and relationship with one another.

Secondly, the Venture trips provide an excellent opportunity to get to know fellow students, and enter into "life in the body" in the context of Bible School at Capernwray. Harbour Meaningful relationships are formed as individuals discover unity in Christ and begin to appreciate the promised harmony in Him.

Thirdly, these trips offer the incredible invitation to explore some of the world's most beautiful land and seascapes. British Columbia and particularily Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands are unparalleled in the degree of ecological variety and diversity. From the mountaintops to the rain forests to the open sea, there is something for everyone!

"For many, the Ventures trips serve as a milestone in the year, a reference point of sorts. These trips are definitely one of the many highlights of the year at Capernwray Harbour! Opportunities like these don't come along everyday."
—Chris Fordham, Venture Co-ordinator
