Please join us on Tuesday, January 27 from 5:15 - 7:30 p.m. to participate in this serve day. If this is your first time serving with this organization, you will be contacted by one of our team leaders who will review some of the specifics related to serving with Barium Springs.

The early bird sign-up cost of the trip is $260 (down $40 from last year!). You must register by January 22 to get this price. After that date the price goes to $290. Payments must be made online, and can be made all at once or in three installments.


Price includes all meals and lodging. Bring any extra money you desire for souvenirs or extra snacks.


***Please note that ALL payments made for this trip are non-refundable after January 22. We commit to the number of spots as each student signs up. So even if your son or daughter can no longer attend, we still have to pay for their spot. If you signed up, but are no longer able to attend please try to find someone who can take your spot for you.


Accompanying us on the trip are our REALife leaders. There will be a leader assigned to each room of students, and all rooms are gender specific.
