GAP YEAR Experience
Kurios is the brand new gap year experience from the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, launching this September. The 28-week Kurios journey includes teaching, community life, prayer, travel across western Canada, and 7 weeks in Costa Rica! We expect that our normal cost will be $18,000, but this first year we are offering 10 students the chance to experience Kurios for only $12,000, with the added potential of $2,500 bursaries for 6 of those students! Our online applications are open now until June 30th. Don’t miss the chance to be part of this awesome journey of faith and growth. Just for applying, your students will receive their choice of a free Kurios T-shirt. Find videos and the online application at kurios.ca.
