Our church’s yearly mission trip with our youth happens in the early summer. We participate in the Christian Outreach Project of the Greater New Jersey United Methodist Church. For one week in June/July, teams of youth and adults from churches gather at the Camp Hoover Girl Scout Camp for a week spent in Christian fellowship providing house repairs during the day and participating in camp activities in the evening. Participants start each day with a time for reflection and prayer. After breakfast, they pack bag lunches and set out in work crews for job sites. While working on homes, many youth have the opportunity to interact and learn from their home owners and fellow missionaries on the basics of household projects. After work participants enjoy dinner provided by local churches and return to camp for evening activities, singing, and worship.
