Transportation

Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call Youth Unlimited to discuss options and additional charges.

Nearest Airport

Fort McMurray International Airport (YMM). Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received written confirmation from Youth Unlimited that you have been placed at this site.

Site Description

Fort McMurray’s hardworking citizens hail from all corners of the globe. Many move here with a five or ten year plan to work in the oilsands industry but ended up staying here to raise their families because of the many opportunities afforded by this vibrant northern community. Reduced population numbers, down 11% since 2015, reflects low oil prices, as well as the lingering effects of the 2016 Horse River wildfire. Food Bank use and homelessness have increased. Evergreen is committed to reaching into our community with the good news of Christ and SERVE will take an active part in this work.  We will offer art and sports camps, go into the streets to spread the love of Jesus, and give help to various community groups. We look forward to serving God together with you during SERVE 2020.

**This is a cell-phone free SERVE site. **

Facilities

Sleeping quarters will be in the classrooms at Evergreen Christian Reformed Church. Showers are a five-minute walk away at the YMCA. There is no air-conditioning in the church.

Day Away

Participants will spend the morning at Vista Ridge Aerial Adventure Park, and the afternoon at Gregoire Lake Provincial Park.
