Youth Mission Trip 2019

Asbury United Methodist Church

AYM Mission Trip 2019

Where: Pine Bluff Arkansas

Who can go: Any youth (entering 8th grade through 2019 Graduates) who are actively involved in the A.Y.M. so get involved NOW!

How much will the trip cost: Your cost for the trip this year is $250 per person ($300 after March 31st). This cost includes everything (including meals) but spending money. What you are paying is actually only about half the cost of the trip. The rest of the cost comes from our Envelope Fundraiser and the youth budget. You can either pay the whole amount or you can pay in installments. Checks should be made payable to "Asbury UMC" with "(Youth's Name) Missioner Expense" in the memo. This helps us to keep this separate from donations made towards the trip.

Payment Installment Schedule (NEW)

MARCH 31st - Initial Deposit Due:  $25 non- refundable per youth 

APRIL 30th - Half of Cost Due:  $100 (not including the $25 downpayment) non-refundable per youth after April 30th.

MAY 30th - Final Payment Due:  $125 (total due after deposit and half payment) non-refundable per youth after May 30th.

NOTE: The price jumps up by $50 after March 31st. Late registration ends on April 7th. 

**Partial Scholarships are available for those in need. For scholarship information, please email us.

What happens on this trip: We typically take around 60 teens and 18 adults on these trips. We travel in 15 passenger vans riding 8 teens and 2 adults per vehicle and have an extra van with no seats which is used for cargo. We ride in similar age groups on the way up and on the way back. Once we are there, we work in "Family Groups" which are mixed ages and genders (8 teens and two adults). The type of work varies and we will know what type of work each team will have at the mission meetings before the trip. In the past we have painted, built wheel chair ramps, put up siding, replaced flooring, cleaned/organized homes, worked day camps/vacation bible schools for neighborhood children and more. All of the details about the trip, including departure/arrival times, trip policies, a packing list, trip paperwork, a detailed trip schedule, and more will be given out at the meetings before the trip. On the last Friday of the trip, we typically have a "fun day" where we go out as a group to do something fun together. We've done things like professional baseball games, amusement parks, museums, aquariums, zoos, white water rafting, and many others. Details about the fun day will also be given out at the meetings.

One last thing: We are committed to an "unplugged” trip. Don’t bring any cell phones or anything that connects to the internet.
