Welcome to the Bosnia International Servant Trip
A Ministry of Healing † Hope † Peace for Bosnia-Herzegovina and the whole World
The Story...
Learn about the history of this trip

Welcome to the wonderful crew who'll be our hands & feet in Bosnia next summer!

Travel Team members are the hands and feet of the ministry during the trip. They lead the camp programs. They visit sites and cities around the country.

Who can serve on the Travel Team?
Travel Team members are ages 16 to 86. Some 15-year-olds are eligible if accompanied by an adult relative. Team members must be physically and emotionally healthy, work well on a team, and have a passion for helping children.

How is the Travel Team organized?
Travel Team members are placed in a Color Group, each led by its Color Group Leader. Each Color Group leads a particular activity for the Friendship Camps and serves as the home-base for its members.

What about transportation?
The Travel Team flies together from New Jersey to Sarajevo, Bosnia, and back. We coordinate the travel for out-of-state Travel Team members as well. In-country we travel from town to town in a chartered coach bus.

Where do we stay?
In some towns we stay in hotels (usually 1-3 per room); in two towns we stay in host homes (usually 2-3 per family); and in two other towns we stay with partner organizations in their guest housing facilities.

If you have any questions regarding serving on the Travel Team please contact Jason Reed
