What To Pack
And other stuff...
Keep in mind, You're heading to
a Tropical Island near the equator
Lots of Heat!!
Don't forget sunscreen and prepare to sweat
Lots of Bugs!!
Don't forget bug spray and prepare to itch
Ultimately, what you pack is determined by the type and length of your trip.
Most teams come for about a week and help us with camps and youth ministry.
Pack clothes that allow you to be active outdoors, play with kids and move freely.
However, not all American fashion is appropriate in Grenada.
The parameters below will help you determine what to pack and not pack.
Don't Forget to bring...
Bible & Notebook / Journal
Personal Toiletries & Towel
Sheets and pillow (for twin mattress)
Sunscreen & Bug Spray
Hat & Sunglasses
Leave At Home!!
Handheld game systems
Fancy or expensive jewelry and watches
Any kind of weapon
Anything sharp or sharpened that can be seen as a weapon; including pocket knives
Anything you would hate to lose
Feel free to pack pants, jeans, capris, skirts and shorts. Please make sure skirts and shorts are no higher than two inches above your knee. Leggings or spandex may be worn under a dress or skirt but not alone as pants. Pack plenty of tops such as t-shirts, sport shirts, sleeveless tops, tunics or tank tops-- as long as they cover your whole torso and aren't crop top.
**In the evening and after it rains, the bugs are extra hungry! Bring at least one pair of long pants to protect your legs from bites.
You'll need a nice outfit for church or if we minister where we need to wear more than just shorts and t-shirts. This should be a dress or long skirt that falls below the knee, or dress pants. Leggings or spandex may be worn under a dress or skirt but not alone as pants. Your top or blouse should not have spaghetti straps, be a crop top or be skin-tight, show cleavage or be thin enough to see through.
Pack a "full coverage" bathing suit that covers your backside, hips, mid-drift, torso and cleavage. Many young ladies have created their own swimwear by wearing sport shorts over their suit or wearing a sports bra under a spandex or Lycra sports shirt.

Most mission teams come to help us out with SummerBash. During July and August we gather the kids in the village, play games, share stories, show them love and teach them about the gospel.
It's easy to think that having a good heart and a passion for Jesus is all that matters on a mission trip. However, there are certain factors and logistical realities that make visiting Grenada harder for some people than others. This booklet is designed to prepare you for what to expect— as well as help you plan accordingly. Read the booklet here.
