JP Summer Staffing 2021

Well, are you ready for something different?!  We are so excited to offer several different mission opportunities for our churches in 2021. And this means several different mission opportunities for YOU to staff!  Below are the three different in-person mission trips that we are offering. Read about each one and select the experience that you would like to staff. If you would like to staff more than week, feel free to indicate that on the application. Additionally, if you would like to staff, for example, the Family Camp AND one of the Multi-Church weeks, simply indicate that on any application. Bring on 2021!

Family Camp

This a brand-new mission experience that one that we are very excited about. This is a 3-day tent-camping mission trip experience (2 full workdays) in Romney, WV. There are two sessions per week, so you would be staffing a full week like a normal JP staff experience. The difference is that there will be two sessions on the same week. Families will come in Sunday and leave Wednesday morning OR arrive Thursday afternoon and depart Sunday morning. Your staff commitment is arriving on a Friday (as usual) and departing the following Sunday afternoon (one day later than usual). 


Staffers bring their own tents (you may buddy up with another staffer if you want). Program and meals will be under the "big tent" and we will benefit from meals being prepared in the 4-H Center's new kitchen! New showers and bathrooms, too! Electricity available near each tent. 


Location: 4H Center in Romney, WV


Staffing Dates: 

  • July 23-August 1
  • Potential Date that may be added, depending on demand: July 30-August 8.

Single Church

We created this mission trip specifically for churches that want to provide a mission trip for their students but prefer, during this time, to have their own mission trip experience. Churches can sign up for a 1/2 week or full week. Staff will serve the entire week (arrive Friday and depart the following Saturday). This will be like a typical JP week except that only one church will be participating. 1/2 week option requires that a church bring a minimum of 20 participants, while the full week option requires a minimum of 40 participants. 


Staff will stay in classrooms with meals and program indoors. 


Location: Macedonia UMC in Winchester, VA


Staffing Dates: 

  • June 25-August 3
  • July 2-10
  • July 9-17

Multi-Church

This is the closest option to a typical JP week, with a twist! Full week tent-camping mission trip experience with multiple churches participating. We are offering both Middle School-only weeks as well as our brand-new Combined Middle School/High School weeks. As with the family camp, staff will stay in their own tents, and we will experience program and meals under the "big tent." Meals will be served from the 4H Center's new kitchen. New bathrooms and showers will be available as well. Electricity available near each tent. 


Location: 4H Center in Romney, WV


Staffing Dates: 

  • June 18-26 (Middle School only)
  • June 25-July 3 (Middle School only) 
  • July 2-10 (Combined MS/HS)
  • July 9-17 (Combined MS/HS)
  • July 16-24 (Combined MS/HS)
