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 a day hiking, swimming, tubing and/or boating at a local state park. Each group is involved in assisting Crossroads Christian Church with planning and participating in community outreach activities, making repairs on a home for a home owner, 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 talking about the day. Evening Feature activities include community dinners, game nights and local music performances.

Transportation

CrossRoads 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!

Directions 

Please contact our Field Coordinator for directions to your location.

Housing

For quality sleeping purposes, we will provide you with a cot or air mattress. Your group is required to bring their own bedding. We recommend sheets, blankets and a pillow.

Food

While in Kentucky, your meals will be provided by CrossRoads Missions. Additional money is needed for meals while you travel and for any other personal purchases. 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 also prepared by participants and staff. You can be certain to expect hearty, hot meals. Special Dietary Needs: Please let us know of any special dietary needs or allergies before AND when you arrive. We may not be able to meet all of your requests and might need your help in adjusting our meals to meet your needs. We will do our best to accommodate you!
