All North Americans traveling to the Dominican Republic must have a passport. You will not be allowed into the Dominican without one. (Note: The Dominican Republic does not support the passport card, only a regular passport book.

Where do we stay?

Your team will be staying on the campus of Caribbean Mountain Academy in the Goshen Mission House. Goshen Mission House sleeps up to 40 people.  It includes three separate bunk style rooms with bathrooms, one private apartment that sleeps up to 7 people, a meeting room, and full kitchen.

How long can I stay?

Most groups arrive on a Saturday and leave on a Saturday. If you need to do something different, mention that to us and we will see if it works with our mission team schedule at the time of booking.

Will we be working with other groups?

If there is another group with similar trip objectives scheduled to be on campus at the same times as yours it is possible for you to spend time working together. This can be a rewarding experience as it gives you the opportunity to spend time with like-minded people who are passionate about service.
