Youth Service Trip Up North!
Service & Spirituality on the North Shore
For those who have completed 7th – 11th grade by time of trip + friends! (whom don’t attend Faith Lutheran)
When: August 7-12th
Where: The North Shore of Lake Superior
Where 2: Overnight accommodations will be at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Twin Harbors
What: Service projects in the morning (organized by Service Learning Camps – local coordinator Jillian McCorrison, a former Faith in Waconia Youth Director!), followed by fun events and challenges in the afternoon. One afternoon will be a mini-golf outing and a hike; one will be a zip-line experience in Silver Bay; one will be a baseball game in Duluth; one will be canoeing in the Finland State Forest. I’ll also be building in some tiered leadership skills and nightly community & spiritual reflection into the week.
How Much: The total cost for the trip (assuming current gas prices!) is $650, which is comparable to a week at camp. Once we have a trip roster, I have the go-ahead to do some fundraising to bring that cost down! We also have a healthy “campership” fund at Faith – please let me know if cost is the only barrier to your student’s attendance!
Registration and $100 deposit due by May 30th.
Who: We need at least ten students to sign up to make this trip happen (which is the requirement for Service Learning Camps. I’m really excited about this trip, and will be talking it up and hoping that we can get there quickly to ensure it happens!
Please reach out to me with your questions and / or to let me know that your student is still interested and will be joining us!
