We are so happy you have decided to join the St. Giles ASP family for our 2022 trip. For over 20 years, adults and teens from this community have been working together in fellowship and home repair to make homes in Central Appalachia warmer, safer, & drier!

This trip is an investment of both your time and money – but the commitment is well worth it. Participating in ASP is a transformational experience – ask any of our veterans. Seeing the world through the eyes of the people of Appalachia speaks to something in our hearts that changes us forever. The bonds that are built as we work alongside one another creates a bond greater than any division that may exist between us.

ASP is powerful and each of you has a gift to contribute toward our mission - we are once again so excited to welcome you into this place!

The 2022 ASP Registration is due with a $275 non-refundable registration fee for ALL participants. (This is the full cost for adults and partial cost for teens.)

Due to the complex logistics & importance of the work in Appalachia, ALL PARTICPANTS are expected to be present throughout the entirety of the week-long trip from Saturday, July 23 through Saturday July 30, 2022. We depart on a Saturday at 8 am and return the following Saturday at about 7:30 pm.
