Welcome to Rapid City, “The Gateway to the Black Hills.” This city is full of friendly people and boasts a rich history. For the past 10 years Mission Discovery has partnered with local ministries in an effort to offer hope to this area. Join us as we serve Rapid City through physical work projects and outreach initiatives. Recently our focus has been serving alongside a ministry called Love Inc. of the Black Hills. They are actively changing lives in Rapid City! Our teams have repaired homes, helped renovate Love Inc’s new ministry center, and gone into the community to deliver furniture to needy families. Your group will be able to make an immediate impact and leave knowing that the work will continue. At the end of a week of service, you’ll have a day to relax in the beauty of South Dakota by visiting Mt. Rushmore, Badlands National Park, see buffalo in Custer State Park, and visit the Crazy Horse monument and museum. Every evening your team will gather to worship together, talk about how God worked that day, and hear from God’s word.
Yes. Our mission trip teams have tons of individual volunteers. We do, however, need to have at least 20 volunteers sign up for a trip to make it happen. If you sign up for a trip and we do not get enough volunteers, you will have the option to join another team or join a trip in the future. We will also issue a refund if you are not interested serving on another trip.
Teams are housed in dorm rooms at a college campus in Rapid City. At the campus your team has access to the gymnasium and swimming pool.
Some teams drive. Other teams fly into RAP, then rent vehicles. Teams provide their own ground transportation to and from the airport and to the daily worksites.
One of the experiences of every Mission Discovery camp is the attention to providing good food! Breakfast and dinner meals are prepared buffet style at the college campus. Lunches are sandwiches on the worksite.
