Teen Summer Service Trips In the USA

EPIC (332)

EPIC Adventures offers a variety of service trips for teens. All of our programs are round trip from Texas and we travel via a 15 passenger van with a trailer. NO EXPENSIVE AIRFARE or EQUIPMENT to purchase. Our summer volunteering trips for teens are action-packed and provide students with a unique and fun way to give back. Working together with local organizations, we have designed some EPIC service trips combining love for the outdoors and a passion for service!

We believe volunteering is not only fun, but a great way to gain perspective. It is very easy to forget just how blessed we are or how our actions impact the environment.  We want our students to have the chance to step back and see the world from a view they might not have thought about. Looking at things from different angles leaves students more humble and aware of how big of an impact they can make on the world and others around them. Our vision is for alumni to reflect upon their time with us as a defining moment in their lives where they can gain purpose and direction. What better way than by teaching them to give back!

In addition to the unforgettable personal experience students gain, they will also be able to use their volunteer hours on college applications, helping them stand out by showing they are mature and ready to make a difference in the world. Students who complete one of our service trips will receive a certificate of completion showing the number of hours completed and are eligible for a letter of recommendation.
