  • “Loved every minute!”
    Scott P

    “I've been on many trips where the trip leaders just do what they need to and don't interact with the group, but that was not the case here. The Journey Quest crew we had was awesome and became part of our crew instantly! We had a few students declare their faith in Christ on this trip and that doesn't happen without the right atmosphere and you guys did a great job of fostering that atmosphere...”
  • “Awesome Troop Experience!”
    Jim W
    “We took our troop from Mississippi to Journey Quest in August 2015...This was a totally awesome time. We whitewater rafted, rock climbed, kayaked rapids and summited Commanche Peak. This was an wonder time with life memories for my son and myself. Kirby spent some time as a cook, so the meals were fabulous...he added to right amount of pizzazz to take them over the top...I want to go back.” Read Full Review

    “We did a five night group excursion with Journey Quest and had the time of our life. We did three days of rafting, one day of rock climbing and one day of alpine hiking. What a great time. The staff was excellent, helpful and professional. We really appreciated their commitment to safety. For a short rafting trip or a longer group activity, I highly recommend Journey Quest.” Read Full Review

    “Journey Quest is the first Christian program I feel I can recommend to others. I felt my kids and I were always in competent hands; even the "dangerous" activities felt safe and professionally managed. Excellent ministry focus throughout! Sincerely appreciated the kind and infection enthusiasm. I'm truly grateful and humbled by the energy and intention I received from each and every Journey Quest associate!”

    “I loved how personable Journey Quest's guides were. I had a great time bonding with them and I will truly miss them. Rock Climbing was my favorite activity and I learned so much about trust and pushing my limits. I learned so much about myself, God, and Life. I wish I could stay forever! :-)”
