Sometimes a change of scenery and a change of pace go a long way to helping us get perspective in life...


At BetterDays, we appreciate this fact and take it seriously. In fact, our trademark is GO OUTSIDE! This expresses the BetterDays value of learning and being in the outdoors.


This simple phrase is a shortened version of Jesus’ longer teaching about anxiety and worry in Matthew 6. Instead of worry, Jesus called attention to the powerful and abundant ways God cared for His creation. If God cares that much for the flowers and birds, Jesus pointed out, how much more so will he care for you?


At BetterDays our Discovery and Odyssey programs provides personal care, adventure, community, experiential learning, and times of silence and solitude that help create conditions to highlight Jesus’ teaching.


Discovery is a simple retreat for rest and rejuvenation. The duration is usually 3 days. It is a place and time to rediscover the Spirit at work, calling you deeper into the journey of faith in God. Scripture, time in nature, simple meals, prayer are all meant to heighten the awareness of God’s powerful and abundant presence.\


We provide guidance and instruction, creative exercises, small group discussions, and personal direction. Discovery retreats can be custom-built to suit the needs of an organization or church.

Who is this geared toward?

Leadership Teams
Small Groups


Odyssey brings together the elements of counseling and Discover into a backcountry adventure of backpacking, rafting, and orienteering. It engages mind, body, and spirit.


We organize trips for men, women, couples, co-ed, and father-son. Similar to Discovery, trips can be custom-built. Odyssey is ideal for leadership teams and groups seeking a seminal experience to strengthen a communal bond.
