What is Junior Allegheny Outback?

Junior AO! is a time for one parent and one child to enjoy God’s beautiful creation and build great memories with one another. It is also a time to be away from the busy schedules and to hear from God in the classroom of the outdoors. Junior AO! is a little rougher than being at home, but only a little. We sleep in screened-in bunk cabins and use portable toilets. There are outdoor sinks but indoor showers (hot water in non-heated stalls).

Who is Junior AO for?

Well, it’s for all kids ages 8 to 13 and you need to be accompanied by a parent. Be sure to bring warm layered clothing, warm hat, warm sleeping bag, Bible, poncho or raincoat, pen or pencils, flashlight and batteries, towel and toiletries, outdoor shoes or boots, tennis shoes, small pack or book bag, and a pillow. You might want to include a camera and some bug spray. We offer two distinct Parent-Youth Adventure weekends. Choose between…
