The best part of my summer.
At Group Mission Trips we are passionate about creating unforgettable, meaningful, life-changing experiences where youth encounter Jesus. By God’s grace, we’ve been doing that since 1977, and it never gets old when participants say things like, “That was the best part of my summer!”
We’ll let you in on a little secret: campers are not the only ones who say that.
Incredible mission trips cannot happen without incredible staff. And guess what? Year after year, our staff tell us that serving as a Red Shirt was the best experience of their summer. (Sometimes they even say, “It was the highlight of my year” or that it went down as “a week that changed my life forever.” Wow. We don’t even know what to do with that, but we think it’s cool.)>
We’ve listened to their stories and we suspect these are a few reasons they love it so much:
- There is nothing like being in an environment where teenagers and adults grow, worship, love, and serve others for a week.
- There is nothing like coming together on a mission-minded, servant-hearted, hard-working team to create something amazing together.
- There is nothing better than seeing God show up and change people.
- There is no better place to discover that you actually really like serving.
Workcamp is high-energy and action-packed producing meaningful life change. Hundreds of students from youth groups across America come together for six days to repair and transform homes – and to strengthen and transform their own faith.
Week of Hope is where teenagers learn Christ-like empathy and compassion as they meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of disadvantaged children, youth, and adults. Five days of service and a lifetime of rewards.
