Mt Kilimanjaro Climb Tanzania

Go. See. Engage.

Mt. Kilimanjaro Climb Package

Experience. Over the past 13 years Young Life has hosted hundreds of friends on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Engage. Groups will be hosted by local staff & leaders, spending time alongside ministry outreaches in the heart of Arusha, where Young Life is active and growing today. Personally see where leaders do ministry and witness how they show up in a teenager's life.

Explore. A new country. A different continent. Remote cultures. People and places where God is moving like never before.

Join the Challenge!

One of the world’s seven summits, Mt. Kilimanjaro, called the rooftop of Africa, stands at 19,340 ft. and is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Previous climbing experience is not a requirement, the climb is not technical.
