7/30/2013 - 8/7/2013 - Youth Mission and Service Trip
GOAL: To build unity in our youth group, a love for serving others in our local community, and let the passion to help others lead us to do several local service projects each year.
DATES: July 30, 8am to Aug. 7, 9pm (9 days)
LOCATION: Walcamp Outdoor Ministries in Kingston, IL: 40 min. away, www.walcamp.org
HOUSING: Small cabins 12x16 that have 2 bunk beds, a/c, in the family camp area. Cabins are all close in the same area. A bath house is nearby but we will have to walk to it when needed so a little like camping.
FOOD: Most provided by Walcamp but may not be on the weekends, may be over a fire on weekends.
SERVICE: Hope to get connected with a family in need through Trinity Lutheran in Genoa
- Serve the local family each morning and then eat at Walcamp
- Serve Walcamp by making or repairing hiking trails in the woods each afternoon.
- Evening will be personal and group growth
- Other possibilities are team building on the ground elements and the high ropes course, canoe trip in the Kishwaukee River which has small twists and winds so you have to work together to navigate, game night with the youth group at Trinity, Genoa
COST: $275 (all food provided for the 9 days - team building and canoe trip cost included - if materials are needed we hope to get a grant when project is identified)
