Who can apply for Higher Ground?
Our program is designed for teachable and positive-minded Christian students who desire to develop their faith, and build their life’s foundation on Christ. Students should be ready to be challenged in all areas of their life, and should have an interest in experiential learning and biblical study. Our program is geared toward students who are not sure what they want to do with their life, have a desire to discover their calling and become prepared to live it out.
Although many Christian students can benefit from our program, those who are adjudicated, court-mandated, or requiring regular professional therapy are beyond the scope of practice of Higher Ground staff.
Where do students live?
Throughout a semester, students primarily live on Higher Ground’s base camp and periodically take trips to other states or countries. Camp Hebron acts as our base camp and main campus during each semester. Camp Hebron is a year round Christian camp and retreat center located north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
