Gonzaga Explore

Gonzaga Explore 2023, June 19 - 24



Gonzaga Explore is a summer outdoor adventure immersion for high school students that animates Pope Francis's Laudato Si' by exploring ecology, theology, and leadership in order to discover our vocations in serving and loving God, our human family, and our common home.

In our small groups of Explorers led by Mentors who are current Gonzaga students, and using Gonzaga University as our Base Camp, we’ll be adventuring into the Inland Northwest while exploring both wild and urban landscapes, learning about Sacramentality and Solidarity, hiking up Mt. Spokane to celebrate Mass, practicing Ignatian Spirituality, climbing through a high ropes course, going white water rafting, making lasting friendships and memories, and discerning our courageous call to be leaders who are with and for others.

For questions, please contact the director Ben Chu at chu@gonzaga.edu or (509) 313-4262.



Gonzaga Explore is a collaboration of the Ignatian Solidarity Network and Gonzaga's Office of Mission and Ministry
