**IMPORTANT NOTE TO CAMP & TRIP POLICY: Due to the high rate of last minute cancellations and hectic nature of filling spots days before the trip, in order to sign up a student for a trip we will require the full payment at the time of signup, and the entire cost of the trip will now be non-refundable. Please, please, please be sure your student is able to attend before signing him or her up. If you have any questions, please contact Kristin Latourelle at email@example.com.
Students can serve in many different ways: they can be a leader in Children's Ministries, they can go on the Tecate Serve Trip, and they join the larger congregation throughout the year to serve locally and around the world.
