2017 YOUTH SUMMER MISSION TRIPS

Join us this summer for an amazing adventure!

Oregon - Current 11th-12th graders

June 9-18, Cost:  $1,100 or $550 w/banquet participation + $ for food

“Boot camp for the soul”—that’s what some have called it.  If you have ever really hoped to connect with God but struggled because of all of the "stuff" of normal life, then this trip is for you.  Does the thought of climbing a volcanic mountain, hiking back into a lava cave, or standing on the edge of a cliff looking down on the blue Pacific Ocean get your blood pumping?  Tent-camping in rugged outdoor locations, group activities, quiet times, meaningful conversations, and campfire talks are all things that we hope will be transformational as God speaks into your hearts and minds.  This trip is a long-term investment in life!  There is an application process for this trip.

Haiti - Current 12th graders

June 11-17, Cost:  $1,500 or $750 w/banquet participation + $ for passport and immunizations

SIMPLE, BEAUTIFUL, INSPIRING, CENTERING: An international experience, particularly a Third World country, is an important part of developing a balanced, Christian worldview.  Our work in Haiti will be serving with the local people. A US passport plus necessary immunizations will be additional costs for participants.  There is an application process for this trip. 

West Virginia - Current 7th graders

June 23-27, Cost:  $600 or $300 w/banquet participation

Are you ready to dive into community, faith, and life?  Do you like adventure?  If “yes,” then prepare yourself for a week of having fun with friends as you raft down some of the world’s greatest whitewater river rapids!  This trip will challenge you spiritually, emotionally, and physically as you are immersed in the stunning beauty of the New River Gorge National Park.  You won’t want to miss out on this adventure of a lifetime!

Tennessee - Current 8th-12th graders

July 9-15, Cost: $600 or $300 w/banquet participation

Imagine spending a week of your summer amidst the amazing beauty of the Great Smoky Mountain region of Tennessee…next door to one of our nation’s most popular vacation and resort areas.  The Gatlinburg area is filled with multi-million dollar resorts and tourist hotspots, yet also is home to many families who struggle mightily to make ends meet financially amidst such amazing displays of wealth and beauty.  During our week serving with “Team Effort” missions, we will meet and share the love of God our Rock with elderly individuals and families who struggle with some of what we often consider the basics of life.  Surrounded by God’s magnificent creation, we will shine God’s light as we build, fix, and paint houses and interact with people loved by God, yet struggling.  We will have daily opportunities to both hear God’s Word and put it into actual practice…just like the wise man who built his house on the Rock.  This will be a life-changing week of your summer, and we hope you will join us

Waltman Lake - Current 5th-6th graders

July 26-28, Cost: $50 

Incoming 6th and 7th graders…get ready to move up to the “big leagues” with your first overnight adventures with the CMC Youth Team!  Waltman Lake Camp is a great place to spend time with friends and some fabulous (and slightly crazy) adult leaders!  Highlights include canoeing and kayaking, campfires and marshmallows, awesome group games, and some great conversations about God in the midst of His beautiful creation.  Current 10th-12th grade high school students may apply for volunteer positions on the leadership team for this fabulous camp experience!!!
