This trip is a partnership with 1Mission to come alongside families in Mexico who are building their own community up. We'll travel down for a weekend, work alongside them to construct a brand new home for a family. It's hard work, it's manual labor, it's mixing concrete by hand and hand sawing wall frames, but it's probably the most enjoyable hard work. You get to experience a family getting the keys to their brand new home and experiencing the joy of community.
Trip Dates: January 17-20, 2020. You decide what time on Friday to leave and head down there and you'll be home Monday evening.
COST: $280 per person age 18 and above, children 11 and under are free, and students (traveling with parent/guardian) age 12-17 are $199.
This fee covers building materials for the house, trip medical insurance, and meals/water while at 1Mission.
This fee does not cover your own transportation to Rocky Point and associated Mexican Auto Insurance.
No refunds will be issued for withdrawals from the trip after January 11 as these funds will already be distributed for building and accommodation costs.
WHO can come: Everyone! Families, Couples, Singles. This is a great trip for someone who has never been on a mission trip before, for families wanting to experience it together, and for parents who want to begin exposing their kids to a different culture! A good age is 5+ (at that age they can contribute and understand). Students attending need to be accompanied by a parent, no minors on this trip without parent/guardian.
LODGING: You will be staying at a clean and safe R.V park, the 1Mission basecamp that is about 8 miles outside of Rocky Point proper.
Facilities include a dining room, pool, bbq area, and showers.
Each participant is responsible for their own sleeping arrangements at Basecamp - Trailer, or sleeping Tent, or reserving a Bunk in the Bunkhouse. We discourage trip participants from staying in Rocky Point at a hotel or other home. In order to get to full experience of the trip and be a part of the team, we ask everyone to stay at basecamp with the team.
Each individual/family will coordinate transportation to/from Mexico themselves. CCV does not rent vans or take down people. Mexico Auto Insurance is needed and you're responsible to get it for your vehicle. You can get the insurance through your auto insurance provider or call Kirk Borg - Agape Insurance - Office # 623-562-3400, Email email@example.com.
Teams will coordinate carpooling or caravanning as needed. Typically a team from a CCV campus will talk about when to meet up and drive down together. Teams leave anywhere from 7am to 5pm. We ask you try to arrive at basecamp early enough to set up camp and get dinner before the sun goes down. If you need help carpooling, indicate as much on your registration and the missions team will help match you with someone that can drive you.
