Though we are not able to take our seniors on the New York mission trip this year, we are excited to instead plan a senior service trip to The Anchorage Christian Camp in Lake Waccamaw, NC.
The purpose of The Anchorage trip matches the purpose of the New York trip–“to develop God-loving and others-serving leadership among the seniors at Bob Jones Academy through working together in ministry activities.”
Our students can learn from and be a blessing to the Anchorage staff as they work side-by-side to prepare the campsite for the summer camping season. Projects include painting, landscaping, light construction, cleaning, pressure washing, and more. In addition to serving, each evening the students will be challenged from God’s Word by members of the Anchorage staff and BJA faculty.
The team will leave campus before school on Monday, April 5, and return Friday evening, April 9.
The trip will cost $350. A $50 nonrefundable deposit will be due on Tuesday, March 2. The remaining $300 will be due on Tuesday, March 30. Checks should be made out to BJA and should be given to Mrs. Reem or to Mrs. Barr.
Students will need to have acceptable academic and disciplinary standing.
Students will need to make up missed class work. Stay tuned for details about how absences for BJU classes will be handled.
Social distancing and mask requirements will be similar to school expectations.
