What's Included


Maranatha’s annual teen project, the Ultimate Workout, is entering its 25th year, and we plan to make this year even better by offering two Ultimate Workouts, one in the United States and one in Panama! Each year, high school aged teens from around the world join the Ultimate Workout and find opportunities to grow physically, socially, and spiritually. This year we are expecting more than 100 volunteers to join together to make a difference at Milo Adventist Academy in the state of Oregon. Maranatha provides all project leadership; we are not currently looking for chaperones and chaperones are not required in order for a teen group to attend.

This group of volunteers will become a family as they help re-side and paint the gymnasium, complete some demo work at the staff housing, build new decks, conduct landscaping, and frame a new cafeteria entrance. In addition, volunteers will reach out to the community by helping local retirees with house maintenance and conduct children’s programs in a nearby town. Download the information brochure for more information.

Final deadline for payment and additional forms is six weeks before the project, May 11.

Rogue River and Local Beach

As part of this trip to the Pacific Northwest, we want volunteers to experience a little of the local beauty of the region. Volunteers will have a chance to take a break midweek and take a jet boat tour up the Rogue River. This fully-narrated trip zooms up the river on large passenger boats and provides gorgeous views of the scenery and chances to see deer, river otter, bald eagles, and more! Life jackets are available upon request, but not required by the tour agency. We are also planning a weekend excursion to Bandon Beach on the Pacific coast which has beautiful views of the ocean from both the sandy and rocky beaches.
