Summer

Middle School, High School, and Combined Youth Groups, Individual Youth, and Intergenerational Teams

Youth groups, individual teens, and intergenerational groups from all over the western states travel to one of our summer sites for an unforgettable week of serving, learning, worship and fellowship. We do repair work on primarily homes in the communities we serve. The type of work ranges from roofing and building wheelchair ramps to drywall repairs and painting. No construction experience is needed, but you’ll be amazed at all of the work that our teams complete.

SSP’s Staff-In-Training (SIT) program provides potential staff members with a preview of the life of an SSP Summer Staff member. Each SIT spends one week at an SSP site rotating through the various staff positions shadowing staff members and helping where needed. Individuals who participate in our SIT program do so voluntarily without pay and are responsible for getting themselves to and from their assigned site.
