Friday, July 26 Students will arrive in Dallas late afternoon/night. All students & leaders will be staying at Hyatt Place DFW hotel near DFW airport Friday night together (you will share a room with other students), that way that we can leave as a group for the flight to Guatemala City on Saturday. NOTE: This is NOT the Hyatt Regency Hotel attached to DFW, you're looking for Hyatt PLACE DFW it's very close though AND a free shuttle! If you are traveling from Central Texas, let us know and we can try to help you carpool with other students. If you are from North Texas, meet us at hotel (between 2-5pm on Friday 7/26), if you are flying into DFW or DAL, we'll help you navigate transportation from either airport to hotel.) Parents & families are more than welcome to stay at hotel with us and join team for dinner.
Saturday, July 27 Entire team depart DFW at 9AM (AA1025) and arrive in Guatemala City 11:23AM n.

There is a pool, feel free to take a swim!
Sunday, July 28 Breakfast will be served at the hotel. The morning and afternoon will be spent at a Filadelfia Coffee Plantation where there will be a tour and zip lining, all these costs are included. We'll take walking tours of Antigua and do a little shopping at the local market (only need $USD) Return to the hotel midafternoon where there will be dinner and time for small group bonding.
Monday-Thursday July 29-August 1 Breakfast will be served at the hotel. Devotionals & Worship in the AM with the whole group. Depart for Colonia Infantil Malnutrition Center where students will be have various options of how to volunteer. If you want to work with little children, you can help nannies at the center take care of malnourished children ranging from newborns to six year olds. If you like older kids, you can help lead games and interactive Bible stories. Team members will also help with preparing lunch alongside our Guatemalan hosts and help with other maintenance, light construction, and gardening projects around the campus and in the local community. We've helped with garden maintenance and painting projects in years past. We will return to hotel and have a group dinner and small group time. Thursday night (our last night) we'll dress nice & have a traditional Guatemalan feast with local musicians and our global hosts. If you've bought any Guatemalan clothes or jewlery wear it for a not-so-impromptu fashion show ;)
