Thank you so much for considering starting your summer with us at Mission Adventures here in Muskoka, we’re honestly so honoured! Please take a look at the information below and please shoot us an email if you have any questions!
VISION OF MISSION ADVENTURES
Mission Adventures is a YWAM short-term outreach ministry for groups - particularly families/students. It's an exciting, life changing opportunity which includes a week and a half of in-class training at YWAM Muskoka, finishing up with a seven to ten-day cross-cultural outreach. This summer we are accepting high school students only.
WHY CHOOSE MISSION ADVENTURES HERE IN MUSKOKA?
We have a passionate desire to see the next generation be equipped not just for a mission adventure, but be equipped for a life filled with everyday adventures with God! We love being a part of the transformation that happens to those that come through our Discipleship Training Schools (DTS). It’s really something powerful to come to a picturesque setting like Muskoka and meet God through nature and authentic community.
And the word “community” has become so cliché, that we want to assure you that we are truly about family. It’s not just a cool word to us, but we truly care about being family to one another as God our Father would want us to be. We care about helping people feel welcomed, valued, important and cared for because that’s how God treats His children! We care about what God wants to do in each individual life and take our role of leadership seriously as He instructs us to do in the books of 1st and 2nd Timothy. We want you to leave this experience so in awe of God and His family!
"Doing my mission adventure was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever
made...when I went to do my mission adventure, I was struggling in my faith
and now I’m closer with God and have a better relationship with Him and can talk to him
every day and know that I’m being heard and loved on and encouraged by Him."

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR MISSION ADVENTURES?
YWAM is gifted in the areas of teaching and equipping others. For more than 50 years, hundreds of YWAM bases all around the world are continually training, equipping and sending out authentic Christ-like leaders into the nations of the world to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the first two weeks of this program, there will be classes in the morning where we’ll dive into our theme for this year which is: I AM
In Matthew 16:13-20, Jesus asks His disciples “Who do you say I am?” and eventually, Peter speaks up and says “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus was excited by Peter’s answer and then goes on to commission Him as being one who He will build His church upon! In preparation for your missions trip with us, you will be learning about who God is so that you can share the Great I AM with those you meet along the way!
Transformation & Growth
One of the greatest benefits of a short-term outreach like Mission Adventures is the growth that happens in the participants’ lives. James 1:22-25 says that when we make ourselves available to God and do what He instructs us to do, we experience freedom and blessings. There’s a powerful exchange that happens when we give of ourselves - give up our time, give up our money, give up our freedom to do whatever we want – to serve the poor and needy. We are richly blessed far beyond what we can often put words to; we grow emotionally, spiritually, socially, etc. There is no limit to what God can do in just three weeks! He is that good and that powerful!
So big news, God is wildly fun! And with how He created us, we love diving deep into the things of God like the Word and understanding His Kingdom and we love diving deep into having fun with God! So in the mix of learning about God, ourselves and missions, we as a school will enjoy the beauty of Muskoka with a variety of activities. We’re excited to help you make more memories than you’ll know what to do with!

“People of Israel, you are my witnesses,” announces the Lord. “I have chosen you to be my servant. I wanted you to know me and believe in me. I wanted you to understand that I AM the one and only God. Before me, there was no other god at all. And there will not be any god after me." Isaiah 43:1-10 (NIRV)
This summer, you'll get to be a living witness of the Great I AM! In the first weeks of MA, you will come to truly know, understand and experience the Great I AM. Then share this awesome God with others on outreach. Come join us and grow in your own identity as you understand God's identity!
