Appalachia Field Trip Details

Standard Schedule

A typical week begins on Sunday evening after 7:30pm and ends Saturday morning. Each Wednesday we take the day to experience Appalachia through hiking, swimming, tubing and/or boating at a local state park. Each group is involved in assisting, planning, and participating in community outreach activities; making home repairs for a local home owner; as well as working in teams to accomplish daily chores and meals. The days begin with a devotional time and the evenings include a worship service for singing, praying, and discussing the day. Evening Feature activities include community dinners, game nights, and local music performances.

Transportation
CrossRoads Missions does not provide transportation to this field. Upon arrival in Kentucky, your group is required to use its vehicles to travel to/from the work sites and living facilities. Please NO buses! Vans are great!

Housing

For quality sleeping purposes, we will provide you with a cot.  Feel free to bring something to make it more comfortable or an air mattress. Your group is also required to bring their own bedding. We recommend sheets, blankets and a pillow.

Each morning participants and staff work together to prepare breakfast (pancakes, eggs, biscuits and gravy, etc.) for the entire team. Lunch meals are picnic style including deli sandwiches, chips, cookies, fruits, and veggies. The evening meal is prepared by participants and staff. You can be certain to expect hearty, hot meals.
