Work Trip Costa Rica Housing Construction and Landscaping
Work/Medical trip in: Costa Rica
Dates: 02/20/2020 - 02/29/2020
Summary: WOL Costa Rica will once again host a 9 day work trip event. Work trips have been going every year since 1999 and have challenged many hearts to serve the Lord with their talents and gifts. Much of the camp construction has been done by these volunteer groups. Buildings, sidewalk, dorms, stone walls, metal construction, concrete block, all these material things have been used to reach thousands of youth with the gospel of Christ.
There are several other work teams needed during the year so please contact Ron Morton for more info. RonMorton@wol.org or 419-562-7758
9 day work trip is Feb 22 - Mar 2, 2018 $580
Strategy: These major projects are set for the Feb/Mar work trip:
1: New staff housing is needed for the single gals and families. This will be a 4 unit complex and starts when funding is available.
2: Landscaping on the entrance end of the dining hall. This area is about 3/4 acre in size and involves block work, sidewalks, steps to the patio area, stone walls, lawn work, irrigation lines, soil prep for plants, painting and electrical for path lighting. This section is located on the end of the dining hall that has a large patio area with a snack shack and conference room for 80 people.
3: Married couples hotel units. 2 buildings are planned with 5 hotel rooms each. This will allow for couple retreats and family events.
Travel: Your flights should arrive into San Jose Thursday afternoon of Feb 22 all depart March 2 . Departing flights leave from early morning to just after noon. Southwest flies into CR and they don't charge for luggage. You might check this option out.
Housing: There are 4 main dorm rooms at the camp with exhaust fans for a very comfortable night's rest. The night time temps are in the low 70's so very comfortable. The camp also has 2 guest rooms for married couples.
Transportation: Our groups are picked up in a bus and taken to the camp property about 2.5 hours away. Roads are nice and the vegetation along the highway is so different from the Northern USA. The volcanic mountains are covered with palm and flowering trees which add to beauty.
Food: Food is always rated very high on this trip. The gals from our work team work along side the Costa Rica staff and have so much fun cooking together. These gals return over and over again and have become a family serving together. Or could it be they return for the leisure trips to the pool every afternoon?
Visa: There is no entrance visa but there is an airport exit tax of about $30. This fee should be included in the airline ticket cost.
What to Bring: Bed sheets, towels, personal items, light blanket and an air mattress is you like. There are many tools at the camp but as work goes, tools wear out. A list of needs will be sent when you sign up to go along.
Dress Code: It's hot, 75 to 95 everyday, but dry. Temps may even hit 100! Now you know why most work is done wearing shorts and T-shirts. The gals may feel cooler in a light dress. Sunday church is held at the camp with casual dress but nice.
Qualifications: Persons with an interest to serve the Lord with the talents that Lord has given them. There is something for everybody to do so come along. This trip is perfect for the entire family!
