upcoming tours

As a creation-based ministry, Creation Encounter believes in the importance of creation-based tours for showcasing the wonderful handiwork of Jesus Christ, the Creator. As such, we offer over a dozen tours to numerous localities and continue to develop more. Below is a list of our upcoming tours, which will later be archived under "Past Tours" for future reference. If you are interested in booking a tour specifically for your group, please contact us! Please also note that we have been implementing an Acknowledgement of Risk for our tours.


Pricing: Creation Encounter requests varying donations depending on the style of tour. For day trips, we suggest a donation of $25 per family or $15 for the individual, although group pricing may also be considered for custom tours. Cash or checks addressed to "John Hergenrather" will be suitable, which can be payed in person on the day of the tour. Participants in multi-day expeditions must pay beforehand, which will vary depending on location, duration, and other factors, so please review individuals trips for prices. 

We look forward to seeing you!

A discussion between a four- and a five-year-old overheard on one of our tours:


“...when there were no people or trees, didn't people and things start out really small, then get big?”


“No, first their was a big mommy and daddy and then they had babies...”
