*CANCELED* DB Outreach: Jetty Park Camping – Cape Canaveral, FL @ Jetty Park Campground
Mar 27 – Mar 29 all-day

CANCELED Jetty Park All-Ages Kayaking/Camping Weekend in Cape Canaveral

As of today, March 18, Adventure Unlimited (including DiscoveryBound) is stopping all work travel and in-person events until April 1st.  At that time we will determine if additional steps need to be taken for the month of April. This means that our DB Annual Jetty Park weekend is canceled. I got a call from Jetty Park campground today (March 18th) and they are closing starting tomorrow at noon until further notice. We have been working with the following citation from II Timothy, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Here is a possible alternative activity for our Jetty Park Weekend canceled event:
Challenge for you: Bring Jetty Park Home! Send us a photo or short video of a beach or camping activity (ie. S’mores, tenting in your backyard) with your family and/or small group of friends to share on DiscoveryBound social media. Text to Lori Selby at 781-956-9035.

Please know that we are still planning and registering for future inspiring and fun events to take place this year. The DiscoveryBound Outreach team will assess the current situation on a regular basis.

Check out our upcoming weekend events:

I want to thank our DiscoveryBound Florida Groups (DB Tampa, DB Southeast FL, DB Central Florida, DB Jacksonville) for their support of this event! Help us spread the word to those that were interested in attending!

Please feel free to reach out to me with further questions. We certainly appreciate your flexibility during this time. We look forward to seeing you at Jetty Park next year!

“A calm, Christian state of mind is a better preventative of contagion than a drug, or than any other possible sanative method; and the “perfect Love” that “casteth out fear” is a sure defense.” (Miscellaneous Writings p. 229:24)

With Love,  Lori Selby

Full payment is due at sign up (unless applying for registration financial aid – up to $150 per person available).

If you decide to cancel your trip, the following fees apply and are due when we receive notice of your cancellation:
Up to 22 days (June 21) prior to departure = 50% of the total trip cost is non-refundable

(If a participant decides to cancel a registration then the cancellation policy for that specific DiscoveryBound event / program applies.) As you are preparing air travel for these excursions, we encourage you to book flights allowing you the greatest flexibility in case there is a need.

What to expect

This trip is rated Vigorous. In the wilderness participants will be carrying their own backpacks with weights of 35 to 40 lbs up a gentle slope over a three mile distance. On peak day you will experience steep and rocky terrain with constant and dramatic elevation gain and/or loss exceeding 3,000′ or more (on peak day full pack not required but optional). In preparation, it is suggested for you to do day hiking with 35 to 40 lbs in the pack you intend to hike with on the trip and make sure your hiking boots are broken in. These practices will help to ensure a safe and successful trip. This is not a beginning backpacking trip. Previous experience is highly recommended.

Daytime temperatures usually range between 60° to 80° F, with evening temperatures dropping into the 40s to 50s. You may encounter freezing temperatures at some of the higher elevations. Afternoon thunderstorms are a distinct possibility so adequate rain gear is important.

Meet your back-country guide

Rusty is an avid outdoors-man.  He has peaked almost 40 of Colorado’s Fourteeners and spent many days on solo backpacking trips through the Rockies as well as backpacked with friends.  Rusty has many years experience training back-country skills in the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado for the staff at A/U Ranches in Buena Vista.  He has led numerous backpacking trips for the Ranches as well as for friends. Rusty maintains a  Wilderness First Aid certificate.  He is a middle-school teacher at Embark Education in Denver and is the Head Coach for the High School Mountain Bike Team which he helped start 4 years ago at the Compass Montessori School in Golden, Co.  Rusty has been a competitive runner most of his life and loves to be outdoors.  The mountains are his favorite place to be.

*Cancelled* DB Outreach National Event at CedarS Camps
Sep 4 – Sep 7 all-day

the DB National Event at CedarS camps has been cancelled for 2020


After much discussion, evaluation, and humble prayer, we have decided to not proceed with the in-person event at this time. This was not an easy discussion for the DB Outreach and Compass team, and we spent many meetings evaluating our options, but ultimately, we feel this is the right decision. A few of the reasons behind this decision include concerns about travel, group lodging, large group gatherings, and the hindrance on the way we would want to run this event with regard to Christian Science.
We are so grateful for the support of the CedarS staff in making this decision.  They understand this is a very different year for everyone, and fully support our reasoning. We are considering the possibility of partnering together for this event in an upcoming year. 
The Outreach team is already exploring other options for how to reach teens and adults this fall in a meaningful, fun, and inspiring way to take the place of the National Event this year.  We encourage you to check back here soon to see what kind of regional activities are available!

WHO:

Teens: 8th–12th grade (2020-2021 school year) Christian Scientists and your friends of all faiths.

Adults: Christian Science adults and friends

When:

TBA

CANCELLATION POLICY:

DiscoveryBound has cancelled this in-person event, so all registrants will receive a 100% refund of their deposit and payments towards registration costs.  These refunds will be completed by July 10th.

Author Heather Vogel Frederick, who heads up Longyear’s

of those who served on Mrs. Eddy’s staff between 1908 and
1910. From all walks of life, these were ordinary people
in extraordinary circumstances, invited to join one of the
most high-profile households in the world: The home of
the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science.
Heather will also relate some of the surprising discoveries
that came to light during the research process, and share
