Arts Camp Czech Republic

Hello, friends and family! I wanted to share a brief description of a project we plan to help with this summer, as well as an invitation to help make it happen.

The Project

This summer, from July 13th-July 27th, Maggie and I will be leading a small team of students from MNU on a mission trip to the Czech Republic. There will be five of us in total, plus Elinor. We will be collaborating with my brother Keifer (who, as most of you know, is a missionary in the Czech Republic). The goal of the trip is to help facilitate a weeklong arts camp (film, dance, writing, etc.) in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic. We and the MNU team will spend our time helping teach, building relationships with students, and engaging in ministry opportunities such as Discovery Bible Studies. The audience of this camp will be Czech high school students and/or Ukranian refugees–this will depend upon the need as we approach July. We are ready and willing to pivot our plans as needed in order to have the most impact and serve wherever and however needed.

We are excited to have the opportunity to lead a team of students, after two years of this trip being cancelled! God always works in amazing ways through these camps, and we look forward to seeing how He shows up this time, both in those we interact with and in our team.

The Need

Each team member is seeking to raise $2,500 for their individual expenses for the trip. This includes airfare, lodging, food, train/bus transportation, and insurance. While team members hope to do some fundraising on their own, Maggie and I would like to do what we can to help raise trip costs as well.

Thus, we ask you to consider and pray about making a tax-deductible donation towards this trip through All Nations KC, which is the missions agency we have partnered with as we are making the transition to moving to the Czech Republic (our timeline for this move is still March of 2023). 100% of donations received will go towards the July trip in one of the following areas:

  1. Team member expenses ($2,500 per person)
  2. Camp costs (supplies, food, etc.)

Here is the link to make a donation:

Talk to us!

We’d love to talk to you more about this trip! Feel free to contact us through email (, Facebook Messenger, etc., or to setup a time to talk in person.

Also, even if you are not able to give towards this trip, we greatly value your prayers! Please pray for the students in their own fundraising processes, for the logistical challenges of coordinating the trip, and for each member of the team’s physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Love you all!
~ Addison & Maggie
