Considered one of the top ten family-friendly beaches in the world, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina hosts more than two million tourists a year. The island features 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean.
This island is a beautiful place, rich with history. But beyond the fairways and tennis courts of Hilton Head Island, poverty paralyzes many of the locals. The island's poorest residents, who most often are elderly, need help cleaning up their homes and are often lacking in care from someone who just wants to spend time with them. You can impact many different demographics in Hilton Head with the love of Jesus.
Your team will have the opportunity to partner with Providence Presbyterian Church, Bloom Senior Living Center and other local ministries. Some of your team’s ministry activities may include:
Nursing Home Visits: There is a fairly large elderly community in Hilton Head, and spending time in nursing homes is one of our favorite ministries. The elderly residents in nursing homes can often feel lonely. You will have one-on-one time with the residents, listening to their stories and encouraging them in their daily lives.
Service Projects: There is the possibility for participants to help at one of the local non-profits with various service/construction projects. It will range from painting, sweeping, and raking yards to patching holes in a roof, doing repairs and installations.
Beach Ministry: Because of the location, there are opportunities for ministry on the beach and reaching out to the locals and visitors. By handing out water bottles and inviting others to play a game of beach volleyball or soccer, you will have a chance to connect kids, teens, and adults.
Your team will stay at a local church where they will have access to bathrooms, showers, and a full kitchen. Sleeping will be on the floor, so bring air mattresses and sleeping bags, or sheets and blankets! We will eat all our meals together and participate in praise, worship and debriefing each night at the facility.
Hotels are also an option at an increased price. If your team would like to stay in a hotel, we encourage you to book your trip as quickly as possible to capture the best price. We will make these reservations for you through our partnership with various hotel groups.
Most of our teams choose to drive vans or a bus in, which also provides transportation throughout the week. If you choose to fly, Hilton Head is home to a decent size airport. You could rent vans to be used throughout the week, or request Adventures to supply one or two vans at a small additional fee to cover maintenance. Adventures vans may not be available, however, and should not be counted on. Our limited fleet is available for some teams on a first come first serve basis.
