Welcome to ASP Moorestown

Welcome to the Moorestown ASP 2019 Service Trip. Please take a moment to read through the information outlined below.

  The ASP Moorestown work service trip is an anual program focused on spreading God's love to empoverished families in Central Appalachia by making their homes "Warmer, Safer, and Drier".  Though we do not yet have a destination assigned for 2019, we will be heading somewhere in the vicinity of the Kentucky/Virginia/West Virginia border July 21-28.  2019 will see a few minor adjustments that we feel will improve on the overall experience for everyone.   We had 126 volunteers in 2018 which was by far our largest trip to date and we were able to accomplish a tremendous amount, but we seemed to lose a bit of that sense of community.  It is for that reason that we have decided to target for 100 volunteers in 2019.  We will have more applicants than spots, that is almost certain.  This means your application carries a lot more weight than last year and should be completed in a timely and well thought out manner.  Beyond the content of the application, we take multiple factors into consideration including (in no specific order): gender, age, experience, common friends on the trip, and we try to never split up families.  We also rarely turn away a student who's parent volunteers as a leader.

The cost for this year's trip will remain $600.00.  This includes the base fee from ASP, transportation, room and board for the week, a yet to be determined return activity, and one night's hotel stay.  This fee applies to both students and leaders.  The first deposit of $150.00 will be due upon acceptance.  The remainder may be paid in installments or all at once so long as all funds are received no later than July 1st, 2019.  (However, If you can pay the whole amount at once, it would be greatly appreciated and cut down on administrative time.) 

Here is the process for 2019 

1. Register online between November 19, 2018 and December 31, 2018
   Parents must first create a record ("account") for their child before the child may complete the application.  
2. Decisions go out via email in early January.  We will send to both student and parent email accounts.  One email will be sent out for each student/parent. Please make sure to include valid student and parent email addresses.
3. Upon acceptance you will mail in a non- refundable $150 deposit along with the notarized ASP Volunteer form by January 31, 2018.  

***YOU DO NOT NEED TO SUBMIT THE VOLUNTEER FORM UNTIL AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED ON THE TRIP.  The form can be found at the bottom of this page***
4. You will mail in the remaining $450 by July 1, 2019

  •           Have a 500 word essay written [students applicants - optional for leaders, and I do read them all]:

***Returning Students***

For those who went on ASP 2018, I would like you to also include the following:

  • ASP often speaks of their 3 S's [Sensitivity, Safety, and Stewardship].  There were several times last year where we, as a group, fell short with respect to sensitivity.  Tell me how you plan to ensure Moorestown will uphold this tradition. [link provided for reference]
