Mission Trip to Tadmor

Many of you had your church or youth group mission trip canceled this year. What if you were able to do it anyway? Tadmor has been busting at the seams with campers for the last 49 years and is showing the signs of this use. Perhaps this is our "Year of Jubilee" where God allows us to do a massive reset for Tadmor's next season of ministry (see Leviticus 25). While we cannot run overnight camps this summer, we can host volunteer groups. We have put together week-long "mission trips" where groups of up to 25 people can serve in a variety of ways, have some meaningful time as a group, and have a little fun too. These trips run Sunday evening through Friday morning. The base cost for room and board is $95 per person. Additionally, you will need to pick a project at a price point and an area of skill that your group feels called to take on. This is not just for youth groups, any group within the church is invited to tackle one of these trips. Click here for a list of projects and how to get connected. We would love to have your group out here on mission this summer.

Steps 1, 2, and 3

Thank you for your consideration of a mission trip to Tadmor!

This is a weeklong mission trip designed to give your youth group an understanding of the value of service as you work behind the scenes to ready camp for another 49 years of serving campers and churches. During your time with us you will work on a project, have fun swim and free time, and have teaching time.

As you do all these things you will be serving future campers as we build an environment for them to respond to the call of God on their lives through the beauty of creation, the teaching of the Word, and meaningful relationships built during times of crazy fun. All these projects are a critical work of ministry that must be done if we are to provide this unique atmosphere to campers. It is our hope that at the end of the week you will be able to look back and see the value of your ministry and will go home prepared to serve your local community.

On this page you will find a list of what to bring and a sample schedule of what your week will look like.

As you look through this information please let me know if you have any questions.

We are excited to have you join us for this unique mission trip experience!
