MISSION BASE CAMP: Overview
Mission Basecamp at Kavanaugh Conference and Retreat Center is a summer mission experience your youth will never forget. Kavanaugh is ideally located to provide opportunities for connecting people with people in need. Mission Basecamp participants have the opportunity to serve and connect with various mission sites in Louisville and surrounding counties and then return to Kavanaugh’s comfortable and safe facility for worship, recreation, and reflection.
Partnering with Mission Basecamp to make a lasting impact in the community is a great opportunity for your group to immerse itself into a hurting world in both urban and non-urban ministry settings.
Yet, it’s not all hammers and nails at Mission Basecamp. The foundation of your experience is built around meaningful worship, engaging service opportunities, and super awesome evening activities and recreation!
Anyone coming to Mission Basecamp needs to come prepared to get their serve on, have an amazing experience, and leave with a deeper faith in God!
The lodging at Kavanaugh is clean and comfortable (think cool in the Summer). The camp has a total of 102 beds and each facility includes showers to accommodate all campers. Many mission teams have considered Kavanaugh to be some of the best mission trip housing that they have ever had.
Mission Teams generally arrive Sunday evening and depart on Thursday. A typical week might look like this:
Sunday: Welcome and orientation.
Monday: Wednesday: community service, recreation, and worship.
Thursday: Pack, clean, pray, depart. Many of our groups plan a fun outing in the afternoon before heading home.
Our program normally runs from the first week of June through the first week of August.
