Life at the Heights: January 2020

"How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news..." - Isaiah 52:7
Warm greetings from the Heights, amidst this cold winter!  Life at the Heights is moving ever forward...a trip to Phoenix to the Student Leadership Summit, a walking pilgrimage in California, Summer Camp Registration, fundraising efforts, Summer Staff interviews, and so much more!  We are so grateful to have you part of the AH Family!  Read below for all the details and more.

Student Leadership Summit 2020

Over the New Year, missionaries and staff from Annunciation Heights journeyed to Phoenix, AZ, to attend the FOCUS conference!  They set up a booth to promote our camp mission and recruit summer staff, taking additional time to attend some of the keynote talks and workshops.  Here's to more and more people learning about our "mission in the mountains!"

Missionaries on Pilgrimage:
Walking California's Franciscan Missions


Part of the founding vision for the Altum Institute Missionary Program was an annual pilgrimage.  This year, 13 missionaries and staff were able to make this dream a reality!  With the help of the nonprofit Modern Catholic Pilgrim, we traveled over 70 miles on foot to visit the three southernmost Franciscan Missions in California: Mission San Diego, Mission San Luis Rey, and Mission San Juan Capistrano.  
With full hearts and sore feet, we finished the journey in about 5 days, walking along roads and beaches, all the while praying and sharing together.  Bringing ourselves and our intentions to the Lord, we returned home encouraged on our mission to serve all those we encounter!

Director's Corner with
Executive Director, Kyle Mills

Can you believe that it is already 2020?!  Not only that, we are already nearly one month into it!  Here at camp, we are so excited about what 2020 will hold.  In particular, as we gear up for another full summer in the mountains, we are especially looking forward to Summer Camp!  Last year, in our inaugural year of summer programming, we had nearly 270 youth come to camp.  This year, we hope to grow our camp exponentially: to have more campers, more energy, more encounter, more fun!
