Spring Break Trip
Spring Break Trip
Wesley has a long and rich tradition of spring break mission trips. We’re the original “alternative spring break”! In recent years we’ve traveled to Mexico, Philadelphia, Appalachia, Missouri, Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Arizona, New Orleans, Kentucky, South Carolina, Washington DC, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Atlanta. In 2014 and 2016, we partnered with The Brody Jewish Center -Hillel at UVA for interfaith service trips to Appalachia and the Navajo Nation in Arizona.
Students choose to spend their spring break serving others, while in the process learning more about themselves and God’s action in the world. Spring break includes Christian outreach and service, worship, fellowship, faithful reflection, and a lot of fun. Our Student Coordinating Council organizes and plans the trips.
Our next spring break service trip will be March 5-11,2017. More information on our trip, including costs and how to sign up, will be available in September. Be sure to sign up for our email and check out the Facebook page to stay up on all the details.
How do we fund the trip?
Through a combination of participant fees, group fundraising, and donations from our supporters, we take a large group on each year’s trip.
We are pleased to accept donations towards our trip, which can be sent directly to the Wesley Foundation. You can also make a donation online by clicking the “give” button in the navigation menu. Simply designate your gift as “spring break” or “service.”
Parents and families can also help by attending our Family Weekend fundraising dinner or purchasing our Valentine’s Day Cookies — all proceeds go towards our spring break mission trip. They are ultra-delicious and will be ready the weekend before Valentine’s Day. You can purchase them for $5 per dozen. Just call our office or send an email to our office manager to put in your order.
