Our passion is youth group ministry, and we want to create unique travel experiences for your youth group mission trip, choir tour, or just-for-fun trip!

Mission trips and retreats: We can be your personal planning nerds for domestic and international mission trips or retreats – we’ll create your itinerary, book your vans or buses, make reservations for group dinners out, and of course find an awesome outing for your group after all their hard work. Common international mission destinations include Haiti, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and South Africa; however we can also assist you with other destinations. For domestic trips check out our Elevations blog for more information on areas that have been hit hard by weather and climate disasters and need your help.

Choir tours: 14 places to sing in 10 days and you want to take your group to do something fun each night? Oh, wait, and you need a bus to take you from town to town and church to church. Want some inside scoop? Need help?

Ski trips: We specialize in ski trips to the most popular Colorado resorts (Breckenridge, Keystone, Winter Park, Crested Butte, Copper Mountain), but can accommodate any desired destination. We have planned hundreds of ski trips and will use our experience to ensure you have a great trip. You might also consider a combination ski and mission trip. Ask us about SKI AND SERVE.
