rapid city sd south dakota home house build building lakota tribe

What happens when you try to escape the poorest area of the entire United States? Many members of the Lakota tribe leave the Pine Ridge Reservation for nearby Rapid City where they discover jobs are few and challenges are overwhelming.

Infuse local ministries and churches with your energy and enthusiasm by delighting young ones in Children’s Bible school and earning the respect of their elders with your service to God through clean-up and home repair.  At the end of the week 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.

  • Lodging:  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.  
  • Food:  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.
  • Transportation:  You must provide your own transportation to and from your assigned worksites.
  • Daily Work:  Each day is unique.  Work can include repairing homes, building porches, working with children at a community center and even leading children's Bible school.
