You will meet the local church's pastor/volunteers and maybe take part in the church service. Camp days you will spend time with the teens doing sports and extreme sports, low ropes which could include building low rope bridges or other knots and ropes connected activities, sing songs, bible lessons and lots of fun! There may also be opportunity to meet and share with parents. Each day you will also have team time, day feedback and planning for the next day.

Alpine, rock climbing and other outdoor extreme experience will be a great blessing to the team, but is not a requirement.
