Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic

Teen Trip ages: 13-19
Region: The Caribbean
Location: Dominican Republic

Dates of involvement: June 18 - July 26, 2024

Ministry Focus: Work Projects, Children’s Ministry, Cross-Cultural Missions, 

Experience a transforming summer engaged in cross-cultural ministry as you dedicate your time to serving the Lord in the Dominican Republic.  This lush country, with palm trees and clear crystal blue waters, is located on the island of Hispaniola, beside Haiti and between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean.  It is hard to believe that in a country so near us, half of the population lives in poverty. If you have a heart for the people of Latin America and want to experience another culture, this is the team for you.

Project Expense: $2790 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

Ministry Project

Your multi-faceted ministry will include helping with the children’s camp’s day-to-day activities and completing a staff house. You will have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with the campers through your music, puppets and drama skills.

Travel and Sightseeing

Following Boot Camp training, you will be bused to the Orlando International Airport for your flight to Santo Domingo, the capital city of the Dominican Republic. A two-hour bus ride will take you to the CEF Camp, outside El Progreso.

For sightseeing, you will have an opportunity to spend a day enjoying one of the Dominican Republic's many gorgeous beaches and do some souvenir shopping at a local market.

Boot Camp
Boot Camp is a time of training to prepare the teams for their mission fields. Our Boot Camp program is designed to build team unity and provide practical, physical and spiritual training. We tailor each Boot Camp experience according to the skills needed for each team. This primitive training will be at the Teen Missions base in Merritt Island, Florida. A Commissioning Service will be held at the end of Boot Camp for all team members and leaders before flying out to their mission field.

To cap off the summer experience, teams will return to the Teen Missions base in Florida for a shared Debrief time with other teams. The debriefing experience is essential to our program for team members and leaders. During Debrief, the teams engage in different classes, allowing them to reflect on their summer. In addition, we focus on fellowship, sharing their experiences with the other teams, and become equipped to take what they have learned on the mission field back home to their churches, youth groups, schools and communities. In addition, we focus on fellowship, sharing summer experiences among the teams and preparing them spiritually, mentally, and emotionally for their return home.
