Hi, my name is Sophie. I’m 14 and going to be a freshman this fall. I am the youngest of 4 siblings and my twin sister is also a part of the team this year. I am very excited about our trip and I’m hoping to reflect the love of Christ during my time in Alaska. I decided to join this team to love and impact others and to strengthen my faith. I’m looking forward to building relationships, being the hands and feet of Christ, and eating some good food. Thank you for your prayers!
My name is Samuel. I am a fourteen year old going into 9th grade at Memorial High School. I enjoy traveling across the country for mostly karate tournaments, and am excited to add another state to the list. I am nervous for the trip, but I think i will have a great time learning more about my old friends, connecting with new ones, and growing closer in my relationship with God.
My name is Noah and I am beyond excited to go back to Alaska for a second time! I will be a freshman year next year at Waunakee High School. In my free time, I play (a lot!!!) of xbox with my friends, play basketball with my neighbors, and I love to play piano, and I am learning to play ukulele! I also love theater! I’ve been in 4 shows since last summer, and they have been amazing! Although I will miss my sweet puppy, I can’t wait to see all my friends that I made last year, and can’t wait to share all of the teams adventures and memories with you all!!
My name is Morgan and I am going to be a Freshman at Verona High School in the fall. I live with my parents and my younger twin brother and sister and two dogs. I like spending time with my friends, going on trips and going to the dog park. I am looking forward to the Alaska trip and I’m sure it will be very memorable. Going to Madison Missions has always been incredibly worth while and hoping this time will be even more incredible.
My name is M and I went to Alaska two summers ago. I can’t even begin to explain the amazing experiences I experienced when I was there. The plane ride itself shows many awesome views! The many hikes and treks through the countryside sport amazing mountains and prairies. The camp itself is right next to multiple mountains and a very powerful river. If you’re lucky you may even see a moose crossing the river like we did!
Besides the obvious sightseeing aspect of the trip, the personal experience is the best part of the trip. The relationships you create, old and new, will stay with you forever. Along with that it is so uplifting to help others grow in Christ and themselves. Helping others is truly the most important part of this trip and it is by far the best part as well.
All in all Eaglecrest is an amazing place and provides amazing experiences. I would recommend that everyone to journey to Alaska to find others that they connect with and to find themselves as well.
Hello from 3,347.2 miles away in Sutton, Alaska (between June 22 and July 2, 2019)!!! My name is Mark and I am excited to travel to Alaska for the first time. I am 14 and will be a freshman at Memorial High School this fall. I have a pretty great mom and dad, younger sister, and brother. I also have two guinea pigs, Teddy and Peepers, and several fish. I enjoy playing sports. I love all things baseball and Pokémon (Pokémon GO especially) right now, but also like basketball and running track. I also like most train things too.
I am going to Alaska because my friend, Malachi, went last year and told our home group it was really fun. I have enjoyed serving through Madison Missions the previous two summers and thought this would be another great way to serve. I am looking forward to seeing Alaska, working at the camp, and seeing what God teaches me and those around me.
Thank you for praying and helping make this trip possible!
Hello! My name is Malachi and this will be my second year going to Alaska. This year I am really excited because I get to go with my Dad!!

Some of the highlights from last year that I am looking forward to again are some of the amazing sights, such as Hatcher’s Pass and Butte Hike. I am also looking forward to seeing some friends I made last year and making new ones! Last, I am excited to grow in my relationship with the Lord. Thank you so much for you prayers and support!!
