What's Included

Overview

Maranatha’s annual teen-only project, the Ultimate Workout, is entering its 34nd year, and we’re headed to Peru! Each year, high school aged teens from around the world join the Ultimate Workout and find opportunities to get out of their comfort zone, serve others, connect with Christ, and grow physically, socially, and spiritually.

This year we are expecting up to 150 volunteers to make a difference in Sicuani, Peru. Teen volunteers will help construct two new churches, paint an existing church, and reach out into the community through, children’s ministry programs, and medical clinics.

This project is Maranatha’s teen-only project. Maranatha provides all project leadership. In fact, adults are not allowed on the project unless they are leadership pre-selected by Maranatha.

More details available soon.

Excursions
Machu Picchu and Cusco

The group will travel by train and bus to the ruins of Machu Picchu where they will take a guided tour. Machu Picchu has been voted one of the “New” Seven Wonders of the World and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This Incan city was built in 1450 as an estate for the Incan emperor, and it was abandoned approximately 100 years later during the Spanish Conquest.

Before departing volunteers may explore the Sacred Valley and the city of Cusco.

Rainbow Mountain

Half way through the project Ultimate Workout volunteers will visit the Montaña Arcoíris (Rainbow Mountain), also called Montaña de Siete Colores (literally: Mountain of seven colors) located in the Andes of Peru with an altitude of 5,200 metres (17,100 ft) above sea level.
