This is not your typical mission trip! Stay Stateside and join us for this Varsity Catholic Sports Camp and service trip as we serve in a neighborhood on the South side of Chicago. Use your God-given athletic ability to bring hope to lives of young students by teaching them what you know about athletics and showing them how they can use sports to develop a life of great character and virtue. 

On this trip, we will be working alongside the Franciscan Sisters and priests in the area. Join us on a journey of serving some of the poorest people within our own country and sharing your faith in an are that is greatly in need of love.

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.
