Spend your summer in Sweden, The Land of the Midnight Sun, where there is nearly 24 hours of daylight.
Following completion of the Lord’s Boot Camp in Florida, you will be commissioned as a missionary to take the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world! From here you will bus to the Orlando International Airport, where you will board your flight to Umea, Sweden, via Chicago and Stockholm.
Your journey is just beginning as you take a three-hour bus ride north to Vilhelmina in the Lapland Province, just south of the Arctic Circle. Along the way you will be captivated by the beautiful scenery of lush, ancient forests, broad-leafed woodlands, mountains, sparkling lakes and colorful wild flowers.
This land is home to the Sami, the original inhabitants of northern Scandinavia. The crisp, cool air will be refreshing as you settle into your tents at the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) base, where reindeer roam the hillside. Your team will assist the missionaries with various projects around the property such as landscaping and renovating the buildings that are used to run various ministries throughout the year.
Many memories will be made as you may have a snowball fight in the middle of July, or hike to view a spectacular waterfall. You will also have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs such as reindeer skins, traditional wire baskets, ornaments, tea, knives, lace and handmade wooden goods.
Estimated Project Expense: $3890 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee
