The river changes people.
Don’t take our word: ask the high-schoolers who tackle Fort’s In Depth. This weeklong adventure challenges teens in ways they will never forget. Canoeing, white-water rapids, camping, team-building, deep friendships, and more await your teen this summer. In Depth is their chance to take their faith (you guessed it) in depth!
