Our team will be partnering with Camp Dellwater, a longtime partner of HEART to get the camp ready to host camps throughout the summer. The team can count on painting, yard work, and cleaning tasks as the camp gets ready to host Native American family camps and churches from lower-income communities for the summer. There will also be opportunities to learn about Native American culture with the close proximity to Red Lake Reservation and the close partnerships that Camp Dellwater has with the reservation. As opportunities arise, we will host HEART giveaways and serve at PTL Rock Church on the Red Lake Reservation.

Making an impact doesn’t mean traveling far- we can be part of what God is doing in our own city! This summer, we will serve with local partners to show the love of Jesus in Minneapolis. We’ll be serving and learning together like our other impact trips, just sleeping in your own bed at night. This week is designed to be a low cost experience for both first time and returning impact trip participants; middle school and high school students are welcome!

On this trip, we will partner with a local ministry, as they continue to build lasting relationships through the love of Jesus Christ on the Wind River Reservation. While in Wyoming, you will have a blast joining in a Native American cultural experience, while blessing men, women and children with food, clothing and other household items, via outreach. Students will make lasting relationships with the Native American children at Kids Club, visit the elderly, interact with students from the local youth group on the reservation and visit a children’s home. We will experience Native American food, their dances, and see how God uses you to transform lives.
This meeting is optional for any parent or student interested in learning more about each of these trips. You’ll meet one or both of the trip’s leaders, hear the gist of what we’ll do on that trip, and more logistical information like dates, how we’re traveling, and deadlines for application and payment.
