Outreaches for Youth Groups, Families, & Individuals
A ten to twenty day, all inclusive mission experience with training for your youth group.
We do the work so you can do the ministry! One of our goals with Mission Adventures is to create an environment where you can bring your youth group to our camp, not just for a cool summer experience, but as a time set aside to meet with God. We’ll have great times of worship, teaching and training together to prepare your group not just for the 6 day outreach but for a life of missions wherever they live. Your team will also have great fellowship with our staff, other teams and individuals. If you have specific questions about what a week at camp looks like please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that your youth group may be joined by other youth groups and individuals
An eight-day, all inclusive mission experience with training for the whole family!
Training: Your family will be fully equipped with training for four days at our camp facility at Warm Lake near Cascade, Idaho. It’s like a fun missionary “boot camp” designed to prepare you to to do ministry as a family, not just on outreach, but for the rest of your lives.
Outreach: Your four days of training is immediately followed by four days of outreach designed to engage your family in sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways. We provide a variety of opportunities including praying, evangelism, caring for the needs of others and work projects. Through this type of hands-on outreach, your family will grow spiritually simply by putting the Word of God into practice.
Mission Adventures is typically for youth groups but we have many individual young people that contact us about wanting to join a team. If you come on your own we work with you to fit you in to a current team that will be going to one of our stateside or overseas outreaches.
We join up with Freedom River Outreach to minister to those on the streets. From the Peanut Butter & Jelly ministry to prayer walks & street evangelism, God is working in a mighty way here in Tacoma. More coming soon…

You will work along-side local churches and ministries with a heart to reach the Mormon Community. Students will progress from being visitors on Temple Square to being capable of sharing their faith with Mormons.
In Nepal your team will work with local missionaries and church planters to share the Gospel in remote villages across the country. Through dramas, prayer walks and much more you will get a first hand experience of sharing the Gospel to people who have never heard.
Visit unreached people groups, teach hygiene in villages which leads to opportunities to share the Gospel, teach English and much more. Despite a cultural and language barrier, you will see God use you to bring truth and hope to a nation that God is passionately pursuing.
The Boise outreach is an incredible opportunity to work unreached people groups right here in Idaho. In the past few years, more than 4,000 refugees have made their way to Boise. Your group will work along side local ministries reaching out to these beautiful people. You will also work with other organizations who reach out to those on the streets through free lunches, prayer ministry and much more!
