Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Work & Evangelism Team
Travel: From Orlando, you fly to Charlotte, North Carolina, and then on to New York City. Your connecting flight will take you to Nairobi, Kenya, and then to
Entebbe, Uganda. From Entebbe, you will travel by bus to the Teen Missions International base in Jinja. You will spend a day or two purchasing supplies and preparing for your 10-hour bus ride to the northern area of Uganda, at the border of South Sudan and the Congo. Your destination is the Teen Missions base in Koboko.
Ministry: Your project will be to bless the many AIDS orphans in the area with a new pair of shoes and socks. Washing their feet will allow you time to connect with them and tell them about the hope of Jesus Christ. The basic first-aid training you will receive at Boot Camp will better equip you to meet the needs of those who come for help. Your team will use drama, puppets and songs to share the Gospel with the people in the area. When the team is at the base, you will help with various work projects and ministries.
Adventure: As you travel through Uganda, you may spot monkeys, elephants, antelope and giraffe. You will cross the Nile River many times! You will also have the opportunity to take a boat ride to the source of the Nile River, the longest river in the world. Bartering for wood carvings, clothing, tea and many more local items in the market will allow you to take home memorable souvenirs.

Boot Camp Highlight
“Boot Camp is such an amazing eye opener to the plight of others in third-world countries. We think we have lost so much here, but we are living lavishly compared to them. Boot Camp is an incredible place to learn to give up the insignificant things of the world in exchange for what really matters complete reliance on Christ.”
Marina K. | 2017 Malawi Team
"We have enjoyed a week of community outreach and now are bussing out to the bush for two weeks. The past few days we have had the opportunity to present in front of the Bible School students and a Zambian Church where we also attended the service. Before that, we attended two of the weekly Sunday schools held by the Teen Missions staff and students. During these events, we played soccer and helped with the lesson. The whole team is excited for this new leg of our journey, and we hope to make a great impact in the AIDS orphans lives.”

Boot Camp Experience
"Boot Camp is fun, it’s difficult, but it’s worth it! I would encourage ALL of you guys that are hesitant to come to COME! It’s the experience of your life, and it brings you closer to Jesus. I’m thankful to be a part of Boot Camp 2017!”
