What is

APEX is all about people.

It’s about the old friends you want to see again; it’s about the new friends you haven’t met. And it’s about a community that is always growing and changing, but is somehow just the same.

(Once an Unbounder, always an Unbounder.)

This APEX will be five glorious days of learning, building deep community, and having a ton of fun.

Who is
APEX for?

APEX is for Unbound students, alumni, friends, and family. For new students, APEX is the beginning of a wild and wonderful experience—an orientation for the Ascend year to come. For returning students and alumni, it’s a chance to meet new friends and reconnect with old ones. For everyone, APEX is a uniquely intentional time of learning, growth, connection, and friendship. No matter your age or experiences, there is a place for you at APEX.

Alumni, we want to extend a special welcome to this tenth anniversary APEX reunion! We’ve planned some exclusive events just for you... Check out the alumni page for more details.

Why is APEX

This APEX, we’re challenging each other to live deliberately.

Life is not endless, and it is not meaningless. We had a beginning, and we have a certain end. How are you spending the days entrusted to you? Do you know what’s most important? Do you live in light of that?

We want to consider these questions together.

And we want to live differently as a result.

But probably clothes. I would personally bring shoes too, but that's up to you.


Oh, and if you happen to have a life-size cardboard cutout of Elvis, that could prove to be beneficial. I'm not saying you should bring it. But you could.

Allergies - What can APEX accommodate?

Carolina Point can accommodate all standard allergies and can usually work with more complicated ones as well. You will be able to list any allergies during registration.
