The Backpackers DTS is for people who love to travel and meet others travelling, as well as for people who enjoy camping and hiking in the great outdoors.
The Backpackers DTS is about students coming and receiving the love and truth of God and taking this out into the growing backpacker population in NZ and beyond. There are thousands of backpackers from all over the world travelling through NZ each year seeking adventure, purpose and truth. What a wonderful opportunity this provides for the Backpackers DTS students to develop friendships and conversations with these ones around the real meaning of life.
THE PURPOSE OF THE SCHOOL
The Backpackers DTS is about drawing people to YWAM Oxford who love God and want to go on the adventure of sharing him through their backpacking travels. They spend the first part of the school ‘knowing God’ and doing this alongside others, before going and reaching out to the backpacking tribe in NZ and beyond.
