Just 65 miles northeast of Flagstaff, In the south-central area of the Navajo Reservation, there once was a lake in Tolani Lake. It dried up so many years ago that not many people remember but the community is still there. Approximately 200 people call Tolani Lake home and within the cluster of homes there is a Navajo Chapter House, a community center and a school that’s closed.
Participants will be staying at a local dorm. Indoor showers are available. Beds will be provided so you do not need to bring your air-mattresses.
You’ll be serving in the community through outreach to residents, community improvement, and light home repair.
Our partner lives, works, and serves the people of Tolani Lake and the surrounding areas around the school.
There are beautiful mountain ranges surrounding Tolani Lake where you can enjoy sunsets that are picturesque.

The full Tool List will be determined for each location and can be found online for every registered group on their Group Page.
The full Packing List is also located online for every registered group on their Group Page, but it’s pretty much what you’d expect. A twin-size air mattress and bedding for sleeping, water jugs and coolers for lunches, work gloves, and modest swimsuits and appropriate clothing.
Safety is our top priority!
Depending on the location you’ll be staying at a local church or a facility in the community. All lodging locations have indoor showers.
Meals will consist of hot breakfasts, picnic-style lunches, and hot dinners. Picnic-style lunches will be assembled in the mornings and brought to work sites.
For registered groups: If you have a participant that has to eat gluten-free--please let us know. We can have a few gluten free options at camp but need to have an accurate number to plan for. The sample menu is located on Your Group Page under the Schedule, Menu, and Packing tab. Share this with your participants so they can start planning. Participants with special diets or allergies are welcome to bring their own food items to fill in as needed during the week. Please know that we do have peanut butter on the menu. Group Mission Trips is unable to guarantee there will not be any cross-contamination during meal preparation by kitchen staff. There will be a staff member available at camp who will be able to answer any questions about food.
A $50 non-refundable deposit is due upon registration. The *remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your trip.
*This amount is nonrefundable and nontransferable
Call us! If there’s space available in your camp, we’ll ask for necessary payment. If you have a cancellation, and you’ve exhausted all efforts to re-fill spaces, call us to make cancellations. We’ll adjust your balance accordingly. If you cancel a space before May 15th, 2020 you’ll just lose the $50 deposit per spot. The entire fee is forfeited for cancellations made within 30 days of your trip.
Cancellations have a huge effect on the people we serve--it is devastating news to them when we have to cancel. Based on the number of registered participants, we plan for lodging, food orders, work materials and staffing–just for starters. Also, depending on the time of year, sometimes it’s simply impossible for us to re-fill cancelled spaces.
We recognize that unexpected events happen that can pull participants away from their original commitment. Please give us a call, we are happy to talk through ideas to recruit other participants and keep your group intact. If there is no other option but to cancel your group, call us by May 15th, 2020 to let us know. As long as you cancel by May 15th, you’ll only lose $50 per spot. All mission trip fees will be forfeited for any cancellations within 30 days of your trip.
Absolutely! Don't just take our word for it. Give us a call (1-844-258-9616) and we'd be happy to connect you with other youth leaders who have served with us.
