Thank you for supporting your son or daughter as they go to the nations! Your child is about to embark on an adventure with the Lord which will change hearts and transform lives. We at Adventures are honored to be part of this journey. While this is an experience of growth and development for your son or daughter, you are also about to embark on a journey of your own. As you release your child to go overseas, we understand your desire for them to have a positive experience and we know you probably have concerns about safety and security. We want to help you understand how we handle all of those things.
The following serves as a resource for you, introduces your family to the Semesters Program and provides the information you need to move forward in confidence in your partnership with Adventures. Your child is growing into adulthood. Semesters gives them freedom to make decisions for themselves and empowers them to take responsibility for their actions. Our expectation is they will be responsible to meet all deadlines, be your primary source of communication and information, and be ready for an adventure of a lifetime.
As you read through the following information, we pray the Lord shows you specific ways you can support your child as well as encourage them to grow into the man or woman God has created them to be. This is a great milestone and we are cheering with you, believing God will do incredible things in and through your children!

***You're Invited! Parents of Semesters Trip participants will be invited to a Parent Reception at the start of Semesters Training Camp IF the trip starts in Gainesville.
