Ministry Description

Summary

WOL Costa Rica will once again host a work trip event. These trips have been going every year since 1999 and have challenged the hearts of many with much of the camp construction being done by these volunteer groups. Buildings, sidewalk, dorms, stone walls, metal construction, concrete block, even the main camp road which took over 200,000 concrete pavers. 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 419-569-1226

Strategy

Two projects for the Feb/Mar work trip are targeted:
1: Relocate the dish pit area in the kitchen
2: New staff housing is need for new missionaries.
3: Landscaping on the entrance end of the dining hall. This involves block work, sidewalks, stone wall, lawn work, irrigation lines, soil prep for plants, painting. The end of the dining hall has a large patio area with a conference room for 60 people. The snack shack is also in this area.

Travel

2023 work trip: Your flights will arrive into San Jose Friday Feb 23. It's important that the whole team flies into the airport around the same time so wait to purchase your airline tickets until advised.

Housing

There are 2 main dorm areas at the camp. The nights cool down for a good night's sleep. The camp also has 3 small guest apartments for married couples.

Transportation

Depending on the size of the group people 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

The food always receives very high remarks on this trip. The gals from our work team may serve along side the Costa Rican staff to prepare USA and national dishes. Work team members return over and over again to serve with Fanny and the CR staff in the kitchen. Or could it be they come back for the leisure afternoon trips to the pool every day? Regardless of the reason, you'll eat well on this trip!!!!

Visa

There is no entrance visa but is included in your airline ticket fare. This charge is not figured into your trip cost.

What to Bring

Single bed sheets, towels, personal items, a light blanket and maybe an air mattress if you like. They do have good mattresses. There are many tools at the camp and a list of other needs will be sent when you sign up to go along. You WILL NEED a large brimmed hat for sun protection and sunblock.

Dress Code

It's hot, 75 to 95 every day, and most work is done in shorts and T-shirts. The gals may feel cooler in a light dress. Sunday church is casual dress but nice.

Qualifications

These projects are designed for everyone to attend. A love for the Lord to serve and a willingness to be blessed are what we are looking for. If you can do these things, you qualify!

Other Information

Sightseeing is an adventure for those that attend for the first time. You'll thrill to the excitement of travel up the mountain towards Monteverde just 22 miles from the property. Zip lines, coffee farms, banana groves and lush green are everywhere. You'll LOVE this ADVENTURE! Cost is around $75 for the day.

There is so much that can be done at the camp and all skills and talents are needed. This is a safe area and there is room for the entire family to go along. Work trips are great opportunities for grandparents to introduce their grand children to missions.
