2017 is the year of camps. We have several opportunities for all ages, to experience the mission field in your own backyard.
June 25-30: Rural Clear Spring MD – Shipwreck Kids Camp (Ages 15 and up)
August 6-11: Inner City Hagerstown MD – Kids camp (Ages 14 and up)
Through collaborative efforts, we pair up a mission field here in the United States with a team of kids and adults that desire to reach the lost. Youth and adults can then work together giving people hope through the message of Jesus’s love and forgiveness.
We believe that by putting people on the mission field at an early age we can help instill in them a heart of compassion for others. Through the use of their unique gifts and talents they can begin to recognize their potential for reaching those who don’t know Jesus .
Everyone will have a place to serve based on individual skill sets and desires. Our main purpose for investing in other communities is to share the love of Jesus through real and practical ways.
Kolton, a Lakota indian, experienced the gospel message through a kid mission team and as a result made a decision to follow Jesus. As he asked forgiveness he wept and shared that he had never been told that someone loved him. The kids on this team shared the love of Jesus with Kolton and was instrumental in bringing him to Jesus.
If you or your group would like to be part of a mission team or would like for us to bring a team to visit your ministry field, feel free to contact us so that we can partner together to bring the gospel to children everywhere.
If you want a better feel of what a trip could look like take a peek at our REACH Short Term Missions Handbook that might answer some of your practical questions about a typical trip.

Trevor Whetzel; First AG, Harrisonburg VA – “We just want to thank you for putting up with us again on this mission trip, I was impressed by my teens on how they actually did. God used all of them, some of them were outside of their comfort zone, including our adult leader, God bless her, she did great. We enjoyed being with you for the week, as always you were a pleasure to work with. My group was blessed by the folks at the church, we are seeing God do a mighty work there, I will continue to pray for the pastor and his church. They inspired all of us. Again, thank you for the great week, we couldn’t have done any of it without you or I-rock ministries.”
