BOLD Youth Ministry will be traveling to Niagara Falls, NY for our Mission Trip with Catholic Heart Work Camp and a visit to Niagara Fall State Park. Each trip is an amazing opportunity to serve our brothers and sisters in need; an experience that leaves everyone involved feeling that we have received more than we ever could have possibly given. Faith in action is service!

Summer Mission Trip with Catholic Heart Workcamp

Niagara Falls, NY
Home Base:
Niagara University

What makes this year's trip unique? 
For this Mission Trip, we will be staying at Niagara University and have the unique opportunity to work on the Tuscarora Indian reservation and in the city of Niagara Falls, doing projects like building wheelchair ramps, home improvement, cleaning & organizing, yard work, working with children, at soup kitchens and more. Most importantly, we will be the light of Christ to those who may need it most!

In the morning of our travel day back home, we will visit Niagara Falls State Park and experience the amazing falls up close with a boat tour on The Maid of the Mist. 

Registration Cost: The total cost for the trip is $850, with an automatic $50 scholarship available. The cost is broken up into a non-refundable deposit of $200, a second payment of $250 and a fundraising portion of $400. A need based scholarship of $50 will be automatically applied to the second payment if needed and selected, no application necessary.


Please make all checks out to Fiat Ventures. Spots are limited! Once our spots are filled, a waitlist will be opened.

Additional Information

IMPORTANT: If you will be 18 or older as of the trip dates, you are required by CHWC to go through Protecting God's Children training and a background check. Please contact your Youth Minister for more information on this as soon as you register so we have time to help you get that sorted. 

All students must fundraise a minimum of $400 toward the trip cost. Fundraising is a big commitment but is a necessary part of this mission trip. After you register online, fundraising instructions will be automatically sent to you by email. All participants will also have an opportunity to participate in a group parish fundraiser that will help offset the fundraising total. The total fundraising amount is due June 14th. 

For specific Information about the Camp and Home Base where we will be staying for the trip, you can visit Catholic Heart Work Camp's Website here. PLEASE NOTE: You should NOT click "Register Now" on the CHWC website. This information will be sent out once your payment is received.

There will be a group information meeting. These meetings are to answer parents and teens questions, meet the other teens and chaperones going, and to go through important fundraising and trip information! Please mark your calendars if you plan to attend CHWC and keep an eye out for an email with specific meeting information once registered.

Once registered, be sure to start reading the information about Catholic Heart Work Camp provided on their website here. We would like every participant to click and read through each link on the righthand sidebar of that page prior to going on the trip. There is a lot of useful information about rules and guidelines and other important information provided there.
