alaska mission trip

Alaska is known as The Last Frontier, and for good reason. It’s diversity and vast, beautiful landscape are like no other place in the world. Around 735,000 people call Alaska their home, with about half of the population residing in Anchorage, Mat-Su Valley, Fairbanks, and Juneau. The rest live scattered throughout villages and other areas across our enormous state that is more than twice the size of Texas. While this doesn’t seem like a large population for such a huge area, it is actually a massive mission field. Many of Alaska’s people live in areas that are not on any road system and only accessible by plane, boat, or snow machine.

Even with the great beauty and allure of our great state, there is still a great need. Seasonal affective disorder, poverty, homelessness, drugs, alcoholism, and teenage suicide afflict every area of the state. Our long, dark winters can certainly take a toll the mental and emotional health of our people. There are so many who feel that they have no hope.

This is why LaVerne Griffin Camp exist. We want to see people of all ages come to know the Love and Hope that is found in Christ. We exist to glorify His name and share the gospel through the work that we do here at the camp and in our community around us. We want you to be a part of that!

On your Alaska mission trip, your team will have the opportunity to partner and work alongside us to help make our mission a reality. There will also be opportunities to work with local churches and other local ministries. The work and ministry you do here, will be impacting the lives of so many! We are looking for people and teams that are ready to work hard and have fun while doing so! You can’t come to Alaska and not spend time exploring the beauty that surrounds us! So, some sight-seeing times are a must!

We have mission trip opportunities year-round that include:

  • Work Teams (grounds care, raking leaves, shoveling snow, painting, deep cleaning, cutting/chopping wood, building maintenance, etc..)

  • Construction Teams (Email us at directors@lavernegriffincamp.org for more info on construction projects that are needed.)

  • Support Staff Teams for Summer Camps

    *Schedules can be customized to meet your needs and to suit the project you are working on.

    Please contact us for more information on how you can be a part of all that God is doing at LaVerne Griffin Camp in Alaska! Come experience the Last Frontier with us! We would love to help you create and prepare for an Alaska mission trip with your church, school, or family!
