HIGH SCHOOL MISSION TRIP (DENVER)
DRY BONES ELEVATION VISION TRIP
June 25-July 3, 2022
GRYM is going to Denver to spend time with God in the mountains and then partner with the Dry Bones ministry to the unsheltered population.
For an explanation, watch this video.
This trip is for incoming high schoolers, currently in 8th-12th grades.
Space is limited, so sign up right away!
The first half of the trip will be spent camping in the mountains of Winter Park, connecting more deeply with God. The second half will be spent in downtown Denver, working with the "street friends" Dry Bones serves.
We will also go whitewater rafting as part of this trip.
The cost is $495.
The $150 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is due SUNDAY April 3.
Students are encouraged to raise the remaining $345. Resources will be sent to help students know how to raise money.
The remaining $345 balance is due SUNDAY, MAY 8.

WHITEWATER RAFTING WIAVER & INFO
All participants need to complete the Whitewater Rafting Waiver (click here).
Here's how to prepare for the experience:
What to Bring
Complimentary wetsuits, splash jackets, and helmets are provided for all trips.
Neoprene booties are available for a small rental fee.
You should plan on being wet! Swimsuits and nylon shorts generally work best; avoid cotton as it draws away warmth.
For layering, stick to synthetic fabrics that insulate when wet, like fleece and polypropylene. Wool also works well.
You must wear secure footwear such as river sandals with an ankle strap, our rental booties, or tennis shoes that can get wet (no flip-flops or crocs).
Sunglasses with a strap and sunscreen are important for sunny days on the river.
Dry clothing and a towel for after the trip round out the list.
Most of these key items can be purchased at the rafting shop.
