International camps provide a safe and comfortable environment where kids can be themselves and consider the news that Jesus loves them. For many teens, the running water, hot showers and three square meals a day is enough to make the experience worthwhile. When you throw in crazy skits, wild games and fun activities, camp surpasses their wildest expectations. Getting away from the distractions of their neighborhoods and having a chance to examine their lives is an important turning point for many. Many kids begin a relationship with Christ during their time at camp.
Young Life-affiliated ministries in several international locations own and operate camps in their respective countries. Young Life also owns a few international camps.
Among them, Pico Escondido in the Dominican Republic, welcomes work teams from the United States who work on various maintenance, construction and landscaping projects at camp.
La Finca, in Nicaragua, is both a Young Life camp and a coffee farm. Here we grow some of the best coffee that Nicaragua has to offer. Not only are our coffee workers paid a dignified wage, but every penny of profit is used to send a Nicaraguan young person to camp! This is why our coffee is BEYOND BEANS!
