In addition to our High School Camp at Lake Doniphan, Central Mission Center provides High School Students (those that have completed Grades 9-12) with additional activities to participate in during the summer. These experiences allow you to interact in more intimate settings, with youth from around the world, as well as at Graceland University. We invite you to participate in as many of these activities as you can this summer!

Peace and Justice Trip:

High School youth who have completed grades 9-12 are invited to journey as a community on the Peace & Justice Caravan. The opportunities and sites visited will provide young people space to learn and engage through the lens of the Civil Rights movement, the message of Jesus Christ, the impact of the Holocaust, civil engagement, along with other social justice topics. Their experiences will also help in providing practical skills as advocates, leaders, and disciples for Christ’s mission of peace. Some of the places the caravan will visit on our way to D.C. include the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, the 16th Street Baptist Church and the Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, and the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. During our time in Washington D.C. youth will participate in community engagement trainings with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, followed by a lobby visit on Capitol Hill. Join us on this special opportunity to learn, grow, share, and be advocates!
