Work Trip Ecuador Stone Retention Walls
Work/Medical trip in: Ecuador
Dates: 10/07/2019 - 10/19/2019
Summary: The slope of the property is... well... how better can it be said than really, really steep! The vast beautiful green mountains of the rain forest is amazing but brings with it some amazing challenges for construction! The hillsides are cut back to create flat areas for all building. Because of this the bank of dirt must be held back and even terraced in several 5' high walls. Large cut stones are purchased from a local mine and brought to the camp then cemented up the hillside. The walls can go up fast with a large strong crew but is hard work.
Strategy: The camp property was purchased in 2010 and consists of 54 acres of lush towering mountains.
It is 5000 feet elevation right on the continental divide. The “Cloud Forest” is filled with rich tropical vegetation and beautiful wildlife. It is just 45 minutes Northwest from Quito, Ecuador’s capital of 2 million people and is considered the “Middle of the World”.
Travel: There is so much that can be done at the camp and all skills and talents are needed. There is room for the entire family to go along. Work trips are great opportunities for grandparents to introduce their grand children to missions.
Housing: Housing can be at the WOL property in Quito or at the camp which is just 45 minutes away.
Transportation: Travel will depending on the size of the group. WOL Ecuador has their own tour bus for larger groups.
Food: Meals are prepared by the WOL staff. You'll eat the local meals and enjoy the taste of tree ripened fruit and fresh veggies. The bread is wonderful and the cooks work hard to please everyone. You'll enjoy the times of fellowship around the tables listening to the testimonies of the team and WOL staff.

What to Bring: Bed sheets, towels, personal items, light blanket and an air mattress is you like. This will depend on the size of the group.
