Projects Overview


We have a wide variety of mission activities this year. You will have the opportunity to sign up for these on the ship. Below are a list of our projects as well as the number of volunteers needed.  We ask that you prepare your packing for the possibility of  light construction/paint work.

 Our port directors have been working very hard to get several of these items in order.  But we have often found that even after months of planning there are last minute changes.  That is part of the adventure of mission trips :)

Florida Key West:

A Key Encounter and Key West Wild Life Center (64 volunteers needed)

City Environmental Projects (10 volunteers needed)

Salvation Army and Garden Club (12 volunteers needed)
