Your 14-days in South Africa will allow you the opportunity to experience three very rich experiences in three seperate locations - Olievenhoutbousch, Kwamhlanga and Hammanskraal.
Olievenhoutbosch is a township, strategically placed south of Tshwane (Pretoria) as a development area. The township was established in 1998 as a squatter’s camp with make-shift shacks. Today the area has neighborhoods with very small houses funded and built by the government.

Are you an Individual?
All members of a mission trip must be part of a team of at least two (2) people. If you are an Individual, find someone to go with you and then register for your specific trip! If you are currently a high school or middle school student you must travel with an adult team leader or a parent who serves as the team leader and registers your team for the mission trip.

Registering for a Mission Trip
If you're in the process of finalizing your mission trip plans but are not quite ready to take the step of registration, you can click the "Grab Space" link to temporarily reserve spots for 30 days. There is no financial obligation involved in Grabbing Space. It merely lets us know of your interest in a specific trip and also gives you some extra time (30 days) to get your details in place before you actually register your team. We make every effort to maintain a hold on your spaces for the full 30 days be alerting you to the interest of other teams in those same dates. It is important to note that your spaces are not secured until you have registered your team.
*Trips labeled "Unspecified" are currently available to more than one specific group type. The type of group accepted during those weeks is usually determined by the type of group that registers first.
Trips are filled on a "first come, first served" basis and registering teams receive full priority over all teams with current or previously grabbed spaces. If you need to extend your "Space Grab" hold beyond 30 days, please contact the EM office at 888-475-6414 as soon as possible to see if that option is available.
You must register your team to secure space for your mission trip. We understand there are many details involved in putting together a mission team and it can be difficult to project your final team size at the beginning of this process. If you're not sure of your final team size, we suggest you make a conservative participant estimate when you register. As your team develops, you can increase your team size, providing space is still available, by calling us at 888-475-6414.
Team registration involves a financial commitment, and decreasing your team size once you have registered will involve a financial penalty. To learn more, refer to our Registration & Payment Information.
