Winter Crew and Stay & Study 2022

SERVE. GROW. PLAY.

A life lived with purpose

There are times in life to stop, reflect on our past, evaluate our purpose and map out our future. Moving into and through post-secondary education is one of those perfect times. Living at and serving at RockRidge Canyon might be the right choice for you right now. 

First and foremost, our Winter Crew and Stay and Study Students have a growing faith in Christ. You will have the ability and opportunity to serve with excellence and have a desire to be challenged and grow in your relationship with Christ. 

You’ll live in a rural environment, surrounded by other people like yourself who really want their life to count for something. We think you’ll come away from your experiences in this community better equipped to make choices about your future plans, education and career.
