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 Notice: Despite large waiting lists, we have had many "no shows" and last minute cancellations, requiring us to request donations be submitted before the tour in order to secure your registration. For day trips, suggested donation is $40 per family or $20 for the individual, although group pricing may also be considered for custom tours. Checks addressed to "John Hergenrather" should be mailed to 1300 Icy Road, Hood River, OR 97031. If you need to cancel, please give the event leader a call, text, or email at least one week prior to the event.

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...”
