On what day does our trip start and end?
Who can come?
What is the adult leader to student ratio?
Our insurance requires that each group conducts a national criminal and background check on every adult leader you bring. Each group will present the SLAM TRIPS director, when you arrive, with written confirmation that your adult leaders have been approved to work with youth. Background checks are good for three years. Please do not send us the results of the background check. That is for you and your church/organization to put on file. We just want to know that the background checks have been done.
Who will be our leaders once we arrive?
We have 7 staff (Director, Daily Events Coordinator, Work site Coordinator, Kitchen/Meal Coordinator, & 3 Student Interns) who are responsible for all the evening activities, food, lodging and community service sites & supplies. All interns will live on-site with you during your stay.
What about transportation?
Where are we staying?
You will be staying on the reservation at the All Nations Center in Wapato. This facility is equipped with plenty of rooms to sleep in, showers and bathrooms, kitchen and a large open play area with basketball hoops and volleyball nets. Guys and girls will sleep in separate rooms, including married adult leaders. Individuals will need to bring their own sleeping bags, pillows, sleeping pads or air mattresses that are twin size or smaller (Slam trips does not provide a pump for the air mattresses).
