Make this summer count. Summer trips are a time for students coming into grade seven through graduated seniors to experience incredible worship, connect with friends, learn more about Jesus, grow in their faith, and serve others around the world. Year after year, summer trips return students with a new passion to seek God in their lives and grow in their relationships with others.

Parent FAQ

What do sleeping arrangements look like?

Students will stay in college dorm rooms. Rooms are gender-specific and often grade specific, and an adult leader will be responsible for each room. Adults and students do not share rooms.

What kind of supervision will there be on the trip?

We take adult leaders to Summer Trip who have been thoroughly vetted and completed background checks. We’ll have a 7:1 ratio of adult leaders for every student.

How do you keep track of each student?

Students are assigned to a room/group with a leader who is responsible for them. Attendance is also accounted for every time the group goes to a worship session.

What does the registration cost cover?

The registration cost includes meals at the conference, housing, transportation, and one day of off-campus activities during the week. High school students will need to bring money for two meals traveling to and from Michigan. Conference merchandise and snacks costs are on students to cover.

What type of transportation do you use?

We use charter buses with professional drivers.

How do you determine rooming assignments?

Information collected as part of the registration process will be used to help determine rooming assignments. This may include a friend to room with, campus, and group information. Our goal is for every student to be in a room with at least one friend.

When is departure?

High school students (incoming 9th grade to graduated seniors) will depart for Holland, Michigan on Monday, June 17 at 9 a.m.

Middle school students (incoming 7th and 8th grade) will depart for Cedarville, OH on Sunday, June 23 at 1 p.m.

What do students need to bring on summer trips?
