Backpacking/Youth Ministry

Robbinsville, NC -- March 14-17

This S.P.O.T.S. Excursion is centered on experiential learning, with youth, while backpacking at Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. On this trip, you will take a small group of youth from the Jefferson County Boys and Girls Club to experience God’s creation in the great outdoors. Over the course of 3 days you will lead the youth in hiking, team building activities, and enjoy the large "rainforest feeling" trees located within the forest. Each day will consist of activities that help teach life lessons to those participating in the trip and hiking with the youth. Nights will be spent making S'mores, having devotions around the fire, and enjoying the beautiful night sky.  Each S.P.O.T.S. Missionaries portion will pay for both him/herself as well as help to sponsor an underprivileged youth by giving them an opportunity to experience the great outdoors as well as experience Christian examples and teachings in their lives.

*Previous outdoor experience is expected for this trip as you will be serving as a leader to those with less experience.         

*Capacity: 4 people
