Quick Facts

What to Expect

Overall Trip Goal: Our Slovakia trips are tailored to draw young ladies and adult women to help lead an all-girls youth English Camp in Závadka. The camp hosts 10-20 girls aged 10-18 years old. We aim to help them learn English through Biblical teachings (devotions, Bible study, etc.). We talk through real-life issues and help girls understand the relational God who loves them as they find their identity in Him. 

Accommodations: We will stay in a large house with up to 30 people (possibly split between 2 houses very close to each other). Because this is an all-girls youth camp, team members generally sleep in rooms with the girls (bunk beds or mattresses on the floor). You will sleep in the same place for the entire trip (with the exception of possibly staying at a hotel near the airport for departure).

Meals: Lunch is the main meal in Europe. Breakfast and dinner are provided, but are light. Be prepared to try new things (vyprá┼żany syr - fired cheese) and be pleasantly surprised by familiar meals (spaghetti). Food allergies are easily accommodated here. Team members alternate helping in the kitchen and everyone pitches in to clean the kitchen after meals. Feel free to bring your own snacks for the in-between times and travel.

Daily Living: You can pack light because we can easily wash laundry here. Shampoo and towels? We got it. Bedsheets? Covered. Remember - Summers in Europe are a bit different. The days are warm (not hot) and the evenings are cool. Think Spring weather. Pack your necessities and come with an attitude of serving and learning as you experience God and share His love in unique ways.
