Mountain Lab School FAQ’s
Q. I notice you are a Christian ministry. Are public schools and non-religious groups able to come, and will they be proselytized for the Christian faith while there?
A. We welcome non-religious schools and educational groups to come and participate in our outdoor education program. We will not teach or promote ideas that conflict with our Doctrinal Statement, however, we believe we can still maintain a high level of educational professionalism and integrity in our programming and curriculum and provide experiences that foster academic learning and growth without disrespecting those that do not subscribe to our beliefs. In fact, we believe that our faith convictions result in better service for groups and certainly don’t prevent us from providing an excellent outdoor education program without a religious component.
Q. What makes the Mountain Lab School unique?
A. Unlike many other outdoor education programs, the Mountain Lab School provides all of the curriculum, instruction, evening activity facilitation and much more. This allows the group’s leaders and chaperones to focus on building relationships and sharing memorable moments, without worrying about teaching or running programs. We also provide each participant with a keepsake name tag that ties into our curriculum-enhancing bead program.
