Summer Immersion Trips

 

Every summer the Bend Youth Collective invites teenagers to step outside of their context for a week out of the summer. For Middle School, students go to campgrounds and play, engage in relationship, discover how they can take part in God's action of peacemaking, and experience love from leaders who they are awesome just because they exist. High Schoolers travel to different places every summer, spending time gaining understanding and first-hand experience of what lives are like for folks who are less like them, less privileged, and gain a greater appreciation and empathy for what it means to follow in the peacemaking way of Jesus.  

High School Immersion Trip Dates: late June-early July

Middle School Immersion Dates: July 15-19

 This past summer on our immersion trip to Los Angeles, we slept on top of the Union Mission in Skid Row after a group ritual of lament.
