Costa Rica Mission Trip 

A favorite of our interns, the mission trip to Heredia, Costa Rica is a faith-affirming experience that will shift your world-view and ignite your passion for working with youth. Learn how camp is run in a Central American country and work with Costa Rican counselors to run camp for children from a local slum. Connect with the kids in a way that transcends language and see how GOD is at work in another country.
