Pivoting with New Leaders
I recommend Wonder Voyage without reservation. They curated our trip to the needs of our group and were sensitive to the changes we needed to make due to COVID. Each day was filled with activities, joy, and moments of wonder. Even the changes we had to make “on the fly,” due to weather or other changing conditions, led to new adventures we never could’ve planned. As a newly ordained Episcopal priest, I learned so much from our guides about how to create a space for young people to listen to (and talk about) God. Our group had a great time that we will never forget.
– Rev. Helena Martin, St. Paul’s Southington, CT (The Grand Tetons Voyage)
Wonder Voyage exceeded our expectations. From the very beginning, our voyage guide made us feel welcome and relieved any anxieties we had with his generous spirit. The activities of the trip never seemed forced or disconnected from one another; they all related to our goals of community-building, social action, and spiritual reflection. Simply put, the mission trip to the North Carolina coast was a transformational experience for the St. Peter’s Youth. The group as a whole as well as each individual were changed by this experience. We cannot recommend it enough.
– Rev. Nathaniel Darville, St. Peter’s, Essex Falls, NJ (North Carolina Voyage)
Unified to Serve Others
Our team went on this trip more than a year apart due to the pandemic. Wonder Voyage gave us the guided structure and flexibility to participate in a trip that unified and energized our youth in a common focus of serving others together. The logistical support from Wonder Voyage allowed our adult staff to focus on the spiritual, emotional, and relational needs of our students in a week that consistently opened up moments of wonder about God’s work in the world and our call and invitation to join.
– Pastor Jared Barnett, Irving Bible Church, TX (Memphis Voyage)
Our trip to Ireland was a life-changing experience that deepened both the bonds between our group members and each individual’s relationship with God. Even during this difficult time, our journey was made easy by the Wonder Voyage staff. I am sure that the sights and spiritual experiences that we had on this pilgrimage will be with all of us for the rest of our lives.
– Rev Nick Evancho, St Martin in the Fields, NY (Ireland Voyage)
Blending Fun, Service, and Spirituality
It was a joy and a pleasure to travel with Wonder Voyage. We had a wonderful blend of fun, service, and spirituality that made for a great experience for both leaders and kids. Our voyage guide took care of everything and made it a fun and easy process for leaders, too. We are so thankful to Wonder Voyage for working with us to plan an awesome week- we are already looking forward to next time!
