Stunning views of mountains, mesas and valleys surround the first Teen Missions Native American Boot Camp, located in Window Rock, Arizona, capital of the Navajo Nation. Spanning over 27,000 square miles in New Mexico, Arizona and Utah, the Navajo Nation is, by itself, larger than 10 of the 50 states in America!
Teen (Ages 13-19)
Travel: Team members can begin their journey on a Teen Missions bus in Merritt Island, Florida or anywhere along our route through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and New Mexico to the Boot Camp site.
Ministry: This special team of Former Team Members (FTMs) will be a part of history as they help train local teens from various tribes across the reservation area. You begin by setting up the Big Top tent for classes and rallies, setting up tent sites and preparing construction class sites. Once Boot Camp begins, you will help by teaching music, puppet and drama classes, and judging the Obstacle Course (O.C.). Remember, we will also need a Miss Piggy and Mr. O.C.! After Commissioning you will be involved with projects at the camp, preparing for 2017. NOTE: This team is limited to Former Team Members (FTMs) of TEEN teams only!
Adventure: You will have the opportunity to go to the Grand Canyon and shop for souvenirs including world-famous Navajo turquoise jewelry and pottery. A visit to the Navajo Nation Museum and Window Rock Veterans memorial is also planned, where you will learn about the secret missions of the brave Navajo code talkers in World War II. Once finished, your team will return to Florida for Debrief.
FORMER TEAM MEMBERS ONLY, NO BOOT CAMP!
