Adult Trip to Give Kids the World Village
August 18-25, 2019
Our youth trips to Give Kids the World Village have been so successful that in September of 2018 we took a group of our church staff to experience the magic. The trip was so well received by the staff that we've officially decided to add an adult only trip in 2019! Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit "storybook" resort in Central Florida. At GKTW, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. They need lots of volunteers to keep the village running, so we're going to make up some of that volunteer force in August of 2019!
We'll likely be working 1-3 shifts per day (anywhere from 3-10 hours most days) in a lot of fun places! We'll work in the kitchen, parties, castle, spa, ice cream, etc - lots of different places! We'll get to work with children and their families. The work is not very labor intensive but many shifts involve a lot of moving and standing.
TRIP COST: $365+transportation
The $365 covers lodging at Terre Verde Resorts for a week, food, and rental vehicles for local use. Please bring money for food, souvenirs, and your day off as well.
You are responsible for getting to Orlando and back to Indiana. Tom and Jenell (and potentially other adults) will serve as a shuttle to the Orlando airport on August 18 and August 25.
We want to make this trip as fun and affordable as possible and booking airfare on your own is the most cost effective way to do it. We've had people express interest in using frequent flyer miles. Others are plan on vacationing before or after the trip. You can get to Orlando any way you want (Southwest, Allegiant, AA, Greyhound Bus, Drive, etc.) but make sure to coordinate travel plans with Tom Shriver-McGrevy by emailing him at moc.t1553256056srife1553256056llivs1553256056elbon1553256056@revi1553256056rhst1553256056!
