Imagine living on a real Old West Indian Reservation and observing a genuine Indian powwow. That’s just part of what this team will do. Getting there only adds to the adventure.
Following Boot Camp the team will board their own bus, which has sleeping bunks on it, for the journey to the northwest. You will share the Gospel using puppets, songs and testimonies along your journey. After traveling through Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky to Evansville, Indiana, the team will spend a day at the Telling the Truth center and be housed in dorms with showers. Then heading north and west, you cross the mighty Mississippi River and view the great Gateway Arch before heading to Hannibal, Missouri, home of the famous characters Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Then it’s on to Iowa, with an overnight stay at Jericho Hills Camp. The next day, you head to the scenic Badlands of South Dakota and will stop at Mt. Rushmore to see four U.S. Presidents carved into the mountain and visit Little Big Horn Battlefield where General Custer was killed. Another day’s drive will take you to Theodore Roosevelt National Park for an overnight in this majestic park.
The next day takes you to Glenaire, Montana, with a visit to a dinosaur dig site and a tour of the Creation Center where your Christian faith will be strengthened. Finally, your team will arrive at the Assiniboine Indian Reservation for your summer work project, which is to build a cabin for the Indian Camp.
During the time you are there, you’ll observe a powwow where Indians from different tribes across the U.S. come and perform native dances in tribal costumes. The team will hand out bottled water and assist in the cleanup after the powwows.
The team will be housed in tents in the scenic foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
