Amazingly enough Kenya was Swamp Corps' original destination in 2011; however, due to various circumstance 2018 was 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 now into Year 3 of their three-year training process! Come join us as we have camp with hundreds of Kenyan and East African campers.

    • FYI REGARDING PAYMENT: If your credit card is declined, be sure to check with your bank and allow a payment from Kenya. I got a text from my bank alerting me and then replied Yes, it is okay to proceed to the bank and then had to submit the payment a second time.
  • Are Vaccinations Needed?
    Check the following two sources: Passport Health or CDC Health Information for Travelers to Kenya.
    Use these sites to find the nearest Travel Clinic to you.
    They can advise you on the shots needed and the fees associated with each one.
    We highly suggest the use of a travel clinic as they are more knowledgeable and prepared.
