Group Mission Trips

At Group Mission Trips, we leverage over 35 years of expertise to guarantee well-planned, Jesus-centered mission trips for youth groups. Our mission trips are designed to give youth leaders an opportunity to focus on what matters most: the spiritual growth of students before, during, and after the trip.

Our History

In 1976, Colorado sustained a catastrophic flood. The following year, Thom Schultz, founder of Group Publishing, organized church youth groups from across the country to come to Colorado and help rebuild the homes and lives of the flood victims. More than 300 teenagers and their youth leaders arrived in Colorado and worked on over 50 repair projects. As a result, Group Cares (formerly Group Workcamps Foundation) was established as the nonprofit partner of Group Publishing. Since then, over 300,000 mission trip participants have racked up more than 6 million volunteer hours serving people in need.

Our Mission

We strongly believe in providing opportunities for teenagers to grow closer to Jesus through serving others either in their own backyard or halfway across the globe.

Our Values

We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God, that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in the deity of Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his death on the cross, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return, and  that people receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life through Jesus.

Group Mission Trips - What We Do

Today, Group Mission Trips has grown and offers several unique multi-day mission trip experiences that take place in the spring, summer, and fall:

WEEK OF HOPE – Youth build friendships and meaningful connections while caring for children and the elderly. Through heartfelt experiences and acts of kindness, youth share the love of Jesus and bring hope to the lives they touch.

WORKCAMPS – Gear up for these high-energy, home-repair mission trips during which youth work hard to improve the living situations of people in need, while also building strong relationships with friends and youth leaders.

INTERNATIONAL – Whether it’s your group’s first time out of the country, or you’ve been serving internationally for years, Group Mission Trips International can match you up with a meaningful experience for your group. From building a new house for a poor family in Costa Rica, to travelling on a riverboat in the Amazon and serving native villagers, our expert mission planners have covered the details so your group can have a safe, impactful international mission trip.

WEEKEND WORKCAMPS – The Friday through Monday model allows your adult volunteers to easily get involved with your ministry of serving while not sacrificing too much vacation or family time. Your group will see first-hand the amazing power of serving as a community to accomplish God’s work. Your group will be part of bringing life-changing service to 40 to 60 homeowners and residents. You will not only bring repair to a house, you will also bring hope to a resident and their home.
