In the town of Altoona and the surrounding areas in the Alleghenies Mountains, mission trips allow youth to serve families and ministries in need through hands-on projects. These projects include painting, home repair, roofing and building wheelchair ramps. Local churches and missions will also be served during this mission trip as groups lend a hand to help maintain and improve their facilities, showing the love of Christ throughout an area in need.
Within Clarkesville, your youth group will be able to reach out through a variety of service projects working in the community through construction projects and outreach opportunities with local ministries.
Youth groups will experience an unforgettable week of hands-on mission projects, exciting music and programs, and group-building high adventure activities. Our Copperhill camp is located in Tennessee, just miles from Georgia and North Carolina, allowing for service projects in all three states. Youth groups have the opportunity to reach out and minister in these areas where closed businesses and industries have left people with little means to provide for their families. Mission trip work focuses on home repair and renovation; however, it is the relationships formed with those served that will be remembered forever.
Over the years, youth mission teams and our mission camp staff have formed strong bonds with the people they minister to in the poor communities scattered throughout the mountains of eastern Tennessee. These local residents are living in difficult circumstances in need of help. Some of them are widows or young families in need of assistance to get their homes dry and winterized. Throughout these areas are children and adults who need to be shown the love of Christ. Your group will be able to minister in these areas through home repair projects such as building wheelchair ramps, decks, and painting.
