A missions trip that will grow your youth group both inwardly and outwardly

Mission Adventures is a week long missions camp for youth groups located in Salem, Oregon. It's your premier choice if you're looking for summer camps or spring break missions trips for your youth group.

Mission Adventures will give your youth group the training, opportunity and challenge they need to engage their faith and move from simply believing Jesus to proclaiming Jesus! Let us take care of the details while we coordinate times of teaching, prayer, worship, outreach, and of course, FUN for your youth group! Students will go home equipped and encouraged for any opportunity to walk out their faith – a conversation with a stranger in line at the store, an chance to give a quick message about Jesus to a group or a conversation with a friend or classmate.

Each of (the students), whether they had been before or not, accomplished something they didn’t think they could. They all overcame on obstacle or pushed themselves beyond what they thought they could do on their own

Andy
Youth Pastor in Oregon

My students grew more than any trip I’ve EVER taken in 18 years of youth ministry! Honestly, I’m shocked at what God did in my group this week!

John
Youth Pastor in Oregon

James came because his mom forced him. He participated in everything, rather grudgingly at first, but by the weeks end… his smile was radiant and REAL! How rewarding it is to see such change and growth!
