Visiting Teams

Mission teams that come to work alongside of Emmaus are welcome throughout the year (max. team size of 12 people Sept-May, 20 people June-August). There are a variety of projects, activities, and ministry opportunities available depending on the time of year and the interests/skill sets of the team members. We “custom-make” the team experience according to the current needs of the seminary and the team with whom we are working.

The team cost is $65 per person/per night to stay at Emmaus. This cost includes transportation to and from the airport, church, and excursion, as well as room and board, and all meals here on campus. Lodging is dorm style or in guest rooms, and includes pillows, bedding, and towels. Our Haitian kitchen staff typically serves breakfasts and dinners, but team members prepare lunches. We ask that teams bring some lunch items (for example: peanut butter, jelly, canned tuna and chicken).

A “Project Fee” of $125 per person is also added. This fee helps to pay for the paint, building/construction materials, translators, etc. needed for the project or ministry the team will be assisting with that week. Some teams may not fall under a set fee, and the Hospitality Team will custom make a contract that best fits your needs.

Most groups choose to do 1-2 excursions during the trip and these excursions are rolled right into the total cost. These include: $35 per person for a trip to the beach, Citadel, or local pool, a day of hiking/waterfalls, or a visit to Fort Picoulet (all of these include lunch).
