AMP Overview

The Adventure Ministry Program (AMP) at HoneyRock provides advanced ministry and leadership experience to college students who love Jesus and want to invest in the lives of others. The program combines extensive training with real-life ministry, as over the course of the summer staff transition to leading high school students in HoneyRock’s 2:22 program and incoming college freshman in Wheaton Passage. Training is provided by Wheaton College faculty and HoneyRock staff.

AMP Training

AMP staff training is six weeks long, during which students will receive extensive ministry training in the areas of high school ministry, adventure ministry, and leadership. Community and personal development are also critical focuses during this time. Additionally, students will receive training in areas such as backpacking, sea kayaking, canoeing, group facilitation, CPR/AED, Wilderness First Aid, and water safety. 

2:22 for High School Students

AMP staff will serve as cabin leaders for a small group of high school students during the four weeks of the 2:22 program. 2:22 uses an extended wilderness trip, in-camp activities, and service opportunities to challenge high school students with what it means to follow Jesus Christ.

Wheaton Passage

The Passage program focuses on preparing incoming Wheaton students for college. Staff will help mentor students in their transition to college by engaging them in the areas of spiritual formation, identity, community, service, and worship.

Adventure Ministry Certificate

Students in AMP have the option of taking the Adventure Ministry Leadership Certificate. 12 of the 24 required hours for the certificate are offered at HoneyRock and interested students will pay tuition for those 12 hours. This certificate will prepare you for a life of service, ministry and leadership in a variety of settings, particularly adventure ministry. Students may also choose to take only some of the course offerings, but please be aware that CE 472 is REQUIRED if taking classes.
