Important Trip Info
Learn more about the Bulgaria trip experience:
Founded in 681 A.D., Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in Europe. After years of communist rule, it gained freedom in 1990 and joined the European Union in 2007. There’s an enormous opportunity to come alongside church leaders to serve and empower vulnerable communities in Bulgaria.
Teams visiting Bulgaria may get the opportunity to work with the local church and assist with work focused on Roma (Gypsy) children, Community Events, or with refugees. The Bulgarian people are very friendly and relational. Teams will spend time learning from and sharing with the people of this country.
Teams partner with the local churches to serve vulnerable communities. Teams may serve Roma children through English programs, camps, back-to-school parties, church renovation projects, or preparing meals. They may also help with Community Events by handing out groceries, putting on programs for children, and more. There may be opportunities to serve refugees on their search for peace and stability.
Note: With Community Events, refugee work, and building projects, raising more funds allows for greater possibilities.
We work closely with our in-country team to determine the specific projects your team will take part in. We will communicate those details to you at least 60 days prior to your trip.
What Kind of Projects Will I Be Working On In BULGARIA?
THIS SOUNDS GREAT, BUT HOW MUCH IS IT GOING TO COST?
$750 for 7 nights. $100 more per night.
Ground costs are the basic trip expenses that each individual on the team will be responsible to raise. The cost covers things like housing, transportation, food, insurance, trip coordination and hosting, preparation resources, and other trip necessities.
*Starting at $1200/person.
Flights costs are always variable, but we work with our internal travel agent to book airfare in coordination with you and your group. Typically, flight costs start at:
- $600+ for U.S. trips
- $800+ for Central America and Caribbean
- $1,200+ for Europe, Africa, and Asia
$9,000+ per team.
The estimated trip costs are exactly that: estimates. The specific and final costs will be communicated during the application approval process.
Trip costs can exceed the estimates provided. This calculator is intended to help you gather a ballpark estimate for your group.

Hold On! BEFORE I APPLY, I Have Like A Million Questions!
Every participant must meet the following criteria:
- 16-years-old or older for international trips and 13-years-old or older for U.S.-based trips. Certain trips, noted in the description, are only open to those 18+.
- In good health.
- Consent to and pass a background check.
Currently, we are not able to accommodate individuals who are not connected with a team.
Field Teams exist to connect partners with opportunities to serve people through Convoy of Hope. Field Teams consist of people from churches, universities, and other groups or organizations.
Field Teams are open to those who are 16-years-old and older for international travel (certain trips require 18+) and 13-years-old and older for U.S.-based trips. It should be noted that many of our group opportunities include construction-oriented work. Please look closely to see the type of work required of each opportunity, and keep this in mind when deciding on the team members from your group.
Field Teams help Convoy of Hope accomplish our goals around the world. Because of this, different teams may serve through different projects and opportunities. Currently, most of our teams will help with construction projects that serve our Children’s Feeding initiative. Additionally, most teams will spend time with children and others who are served through Convoy of Hope.
We don’t list every possible date for your teams to serve as there are many changing factors, and that list would be near impossible to keep for each place of service. In every place, however, there are multiple windows of opportunity throughout the entire year, except for a break around Christmas. Please let us know via email or your application of 2 or 3 windows of time (a Saturday-Saturday works best in the Western Hemisphere), and a place(s) that interests you, and we will work to find a time that works for both you and the field.
