Honduras Planning Meeting

Pictured: 2019 Year 1 Honduras Camp

The Hondurans found out about camp several years ago right after Year 1 in Nicaragua as many of the people in Nicaragua had friends in Honduras. For the last two years, the Hondurans have invested in sending people to see camp and learn about its impact. Ever since they have been waiting their turn for training.

A slot amazingly opened for June of 2019 and when asked when they could do it: these dates were the exact time frame they wanted and knew would offer the maximum participation. The other tremendous thing which came from this is that some of the campers from Nicaragua, who are not able to have camp in 2019 due to the political situation, will be able to go to Honduras. God meeting many needs. In fact, Rolando Obando, Nicaraguan Swamp Camp Director, will be leading the training under the guidance of Jeff, and will be taking a team of Nicaraguan campers, counselors and adult volunteers to spearhead the training. They will be accompanied by a team from the U.S. Rolando will be making a trip to Honduras later this year to scout out locations, work on budgets and make preparations. So, wow...this is exciting news and a bit unexpected...but it seems the Spirit is always working; we just need to keep in step!

JOIN US TODAY and let's continue spreading the Swamp Camp Culture and the Good News to the children of Central America.

BTW, invitations to the surrounding countries of Cost Rica, Panama, El Salvador, and Guatemala will be given for an opportunity to experience the camp. The vision is to have the Nicaraguans, Costa Ricans, and Hondurans, under Rolando and his wife, Selene's, direction, lead the ongoing training and expansion of the Swamp Summer Camps into other Central American nations.
