WHERE YOU CAN SERVE

Impact

High School, 18-24 & Adult
Bayside’s Breakaway Kids Camp goes to Mexico! This team partners with the local churches in Mexico to minister to the kids in the community sharing the Gospel message. Key components to impact teams are games, Bible stories, arts and crafts, worship and giving lots of piggyback rides.

Construction

High School, 18-24 & Adult
Our construction teams build homes for families in need that are connected to the churches and communities where we work. These teams spend the entire week constructing a 2-bedroom home in one week. Construction leads need students who are focused, committed and not afraid of hard work.

Festival

High School, 18-24 & Adult
This traveling team brings some extra fun to our Impact Teams. Throughout the week, festival teams bring a mini carnival to the churches with bounce houses, face painting, balloon animals.

Community Service

18-24 & Adult
These teams are the definition of flexible! They will serve throughout the community. Projects range from painting, homeless ministry, park clean-ups and more depending on the needs of the communities. This team requires a “can-do” attitude! and games. (College & Adult)

Interpreter

18-24 & Adult
The interpreter role is a very important duty on this trip. Interpreters will be translating conversations between the adult leaders, students, children and pastors. In a way, the interpreter can be seen as a leadership role with the interpreter and the adult leader working together to keep the communication flowing.

F.A.Q.

During Easter week Bayside students and adults come together to serve as God’s hands and feet in Mexicali, Mexico. Mexico Outreach started in 1996 with just a small group of 26 students and has grown to over 1000+ because of the positive and lasting impact on the Mexican community and on the Americans that go. The large group divides into smaller teams that serve all over the Mexicali valley supporting and encouraging the churches and organizations we partner with. The week is packed with amazing sermons, a close community, piggy back rides, servant hearts, fantastic food, and powerful experiences

The Mexico Trip is transformational! Student and adult participants experience God in a new place, have opportunities to serve, develop lasting friendships, make life-long memories and God moves in their lives and the lives of those they serve. If students or adults are wanting deeper connection with others at the church, this trip guarantees new friendships and an authentic community experience. The need is great, and we believe God wants to use you to impact the world!

Bayside is taking all necessary measures and precautions pertaining to COVID-19. We keep a constant pulse on current CDC and State Department guidelines for international travel. As we move forward in planning this trip, it is our desire to minimize possible exposure to our participants, as well as those we are going to serve in Mexico. Please know that we are being fluid and flexible, as the guidelines change. We will do everything we can to keep all participants up to date on any changes to these protocols.
• Masks are optional.
• Vaccinations are not required to participate.
• We are developing a plan for testing prior to departure, as well as the ability to test prior to returning to the U.S. at no additional cost to the participant.
• We are developing a plan for participants to return home if tested positive for Covid-19 at any point on the trip.
• We will have a transportation plan to respond to any positive cases for Covid-19.
• Neither Mexico or the USA currently require Covid test results to travel by land in or out the country.
• A full refund will be given if tested positive for Covid-19 prior to departure.
• Our first aid team is working diligently to take precautions and plan for every possible scenario.

This trip has limited capacity and is complex in planning and logistics. Once placed on a team, costs incur.
Full refunds will be processed if requested by January 31, 2023.
Partial refund will be processed if requested by Feb 5, 2023. $149 is non-refundable. If you are unable to participate due to a positive Covid Test prior to departure, we will process a refund in full.
