Pastor Sarah and her High School Leadership Team have arranged TWO wonderful trips for our high school youth this summer, plus the opportunity for interested students to attend Leadership Lab at Augustana College:

NEW ORLEANS ~ June 18-25 (Sun-Sun)

Camp RHINO (Rebuilding Hope in New Orleans – www.rhinonola.org/camp-rhino/) provides construction, demolition and other assistance to structures affected by Hurricane Katrina (2005) and other recent natural disasters that have affected New Orleans.  Bethlehem has worked with Camp RHINO in recent years and have had wonderful experiences under their leadership.

Cost: $700/person – $150 deposit due by February 17 to make a reservation.

BOUNDARY WATERS WILDERNESS CANOE AREA ~ August 6-12 (Sat-Sat)

Our youth and adult chaperones will spend 5 days in one of the most serene landscapes in the world, the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area between the United States and Canada. The Boundary Waters is an area with hundreds of interconnected lakes that are completely undeveloped and accessible only by canoe and foot.  Our time in the backcountry will be filled with canoeing, portaging (carrying our equipment, including canoes, on trails between lakes), hiking, cooking, camping, and just “being”. There is no cellular coverage so everyone is “off the grid”.

Cost: $800/person – $150 deposit due by February 17 to make a reservation.

LEADERSHIP LAB / AUGUSTANA COLLEGE (Rock Island, IL) ~ July 24-29 (Mon-Sat)

“Lab” is a robust week of study, worship and building relationships. Each year/level is structured to help participants progress in their ability to be responsible youth ministry leaders and help them grow in their awareness of God, self and others. Participants spend from 8:30am-11:00pm each day in small and large group gatherings, planning, learning, prayer and discovering where they are in their faith journey.

Cost: $330/person (Full price is $380. Bethlehem provides a $50 scholarship to each participant).

NOTE: The costs shown above are “list price”. Students will have opportunities to subsidize their trips and lower these costs through service projects and High School events this spring. Stay tuned for details.
