Wheaton Passage Site Options

One of the unique features of Passage is the component that happens off-site from Wheaton's IL location. All students will select an off-site location, all of which are owned or operated by Wheaton College staff, and enjoy an incredible small-group formational experience.

Northwoods Passage

Northwoods and Equestrian Passage takes place at the HoneyRock Center for Leadership Development, a campus of Wheaton College. After settling into your cabin, you’ll quickly take in all the Northwoods of Wisconsin has to offer: hiking, canoeing, star-gazing, campfires, trail-rides, and more! The residential experience provides a great opportunity to begin building friendships as you share life through activities, meals, and small group discussions.

Wilderness Passage

Previous wilderness and camping experience are not necessary. Your wilderness trip will take you on one of three amazing excursions to enjoy God’s creation: backpacking, canoeing, or rock climbing. Your trip will provide close community, facilitate personal growth, and prepare you for the transition into college.
