Swamp Corps Kenya Trip
Amazingly enough Kenya was Swamp Corps' original destination in 2011; however, due to various circumstance 2018 is the year. A small team has been going to Kenya each year in December since 2015 (2016 group pictured above overlooking scenic view of Nairobi), helping to run a 2-night, 3-day retreat and training their counselors and working with Amos & Kiki Otiene as the directors. We are all ready for the full-blown three-year training process to begin! Come join us as we have camp with hundreds of Kenyan and East African campers.
