The Trip

backpackingconstruction1childrensmin1sports2teen

1 Trip + 2 Hemispheres + 4 Countries = 100% Awesomeness.  This trip is backpacking. Roughing it a bit.  Carry everything you need in one bag. This trip is geared towards Christians with an adventurous spirit.

There will be a good mix of reaching out to people along the way and time bonding as a team. You will do little bits of construction and sports and ministry as well as tourism and taking in the sights.

The Conditions: Roughing It

Expect everything from a 1 star hotel (by American standards) down to sleeping on the floor and on un-air-conditioned buses.  You will have overnight bus rides, long days and the time of your life.  You will be roughing it, but not camping levels of roughing it.  Don’t expect perfect comfort, but you’ll be fine.   We will be sleeping in buses, hostels, hotels, and on floors.  Bring a light sleeping bag.  We will have lots of good food and some not so great food in Peru 🙂

The Cost: Moderately Expesnive

$2500 per person (including everything you need on the ground) Plus airfare to Bogota and from Santiago..

The Focus: Some Discipleship/Some Outreach
