2023 Minneapolis Trip


Trip cost:

Approximately $425 (final cost will be determined at a later date)

All trip costs are raised by the student, this is not an out-of-pocket cost.



-Church van and rented vehicles


Forms needed:

Medical Authorization/Liability Release (online)


Safety & Lodging:

In 2022 we stayed in an Airbnb rental home outside of downtown Minneapolis, and our expectation is that we’ll be doing the same this year. (Exact location TBD) Dan Pack and his family have spent a significant amount of time building relationships with people in the community and getting to know the area. Because of this, our groups are at an extremely decreased risk of incident. Part of the group orientation with Dan Pack includes orientation on safety. Because of all of this, none of our groups that have gone over multiple years have had any problems with safety.



-Breakfast – provided by us at lodging

Trip Leaders:

We’re currently in the process of coordinating additional leaders, and will update as they are confirmed.
