Summer Camp Staff Training Program
Stacks Image 6299
Many people in the Charleston, SC area have been traveling each year to this beautiful country for some time and sharing about their Swamp camp experiences. Well, the time has come to go and extend a warm Swamp welcome to kids across Central America. We are thankful for the Hoovers and the Liles, long time Swamp volunteers, for their vision and help spreading the news about Swamp Corps and its training process. Year 1 was a huge success, Year 2 was even more so despite moving to a new camp site (ran out of room at the old one, yeah!), Year 3, where a return to the Year 1 camp site was made, we saw God do amazing things. Several church leaders were present (along with their kids) and a discussion was made to return for a Year 4; a decision born from an invitation to Jeff and Jennifer to the Central American Leadership conference in October during which they would like to discuss multiple camps across Central America. In light of this, a team from Honduras will come to Nicaragua next year during Year 4 to begin their training; we will see where the Spirit leads in 2019. We are looking forward to amazing time in our Year 4 trip. Come join us and watch what God does in the lives of the youth in Central America!
