Belize Service Trip 2017-2018

If your child is in High School at CCS and would like to go and serve on the trip they will need to apply. Please fill in the Belize Preparation Document by clicking on the following link. Belize Preparation Doc. We need this document emailed or handed in to me on or before September 15, 2017. Remember that this is just the application process and does not guarantee your child going on the trip. We are looking at taking twenty students this year so unfortunately not everyone gets to go.

Last year's Belize Service Trip took place April 1-12, 2017. We were able to continue building our relationships with YWAM, the Nazarene Primary School and the Children's Home. Photos can be seen below. 

Please be aware that Calgary Christian School provides an open learning environment that allows students to explore as many opportunities as possible and invite learning/growth opportunities for our student population.  Our educational philosophy allows for a great deal of learning that should happen outside the classroom. Service/experiential learning is quickly becoming a key component to how we operate in God’s great world. The Belize trip has been designed with the purpose of allowing students to grow and mature while glorifying God through our actions, behaviour and knowledge.  

This trip must be viewed as both an opportunity and a privilege.  As such the onus must be placed on the student to prove that no unnecessary hardship will come as a result of their participation.  In order to earn the right to go on this trip the following conditions must be agreed to by the student:

  1. The student agrees to attend all classes and show up on time.  Skipping and showing up late are irresponsible and therefore will nullify the student’s opportunity to participate in the trip.
  2. Students must participate by doing all the service & fundraising opportunities that we do together over the year before we go to Belize. Failure to meet expectations will result in the student being removed from the trip.
  3. Lifestyle choices must be wise and God honoring.  Calgary Christian School has adopted a “zero tolerance” attitude regarding substance abuse, including drugs, alcohol and other related activities taking place before or during any of its trips.

 I am truly looking forward to going to Belize and working together with our students on our 12th Belize Service trip.  

Blessings,

Phil Bonk
