Are you looking for a vacation that will leave life changing memories for everyone?
Do you want to make the most of your time together as a family?
Would you like to make concrete the Gospel values you are trying to teach your children?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you are part of a growing trend. Family volunteer travel has been on the increase for the last few years. Vacations That Give offers great service vacations working with Native Americans in northeast Oklahoma, serving in the sun of Rincon, PR, visiting the Gulf area of Mississippi or Eastern Pennsylvania to offer assistance with home repair. You will have the opportunity to explore a different cultures, learn a little about our country's history, provide volunteer serivce to a community in need all while spending time together as a family.
These trips are designed with families in mind. Not only will you have the opportunity to provide service to the community but you will have the chance to spend time within another culture. The specific work will vary from simple home repair and painting to volunteering in an orphanage, to serving at a soup kitchen. Each day will also have some time to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, hiking, golf (nine holes or miniature), swimming and the such. We will also visit local cultural sights. As with all of our programs we will meet each evening as a group and reflect on our experiences in light of the Gospel. And as an added bonus you will have the opportunity to share the week with other families similar to yours
The living is comfy but simple, dorm style with home cooked meals. All the arrangements are coordinated for you so you can enjoy your family.
Families have traveled and worked with us in Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma; Rincon, Puerto Rico; Scranton, Pennsylvania and Santiago,Chile.
