From the 200 foot cliffs of Cabo Rojo to the ancient streets of San Juan, Puerto Rico is known for its exotic beaches and relaxed Caribbean culture.
However, life on this island isn't perfect. Almost half of the population lives below the poverty line and it is difficult to find jobs.
Will you share the love of Jesus in Puerto Rico?
While in Puerto Rico, you will work with Camp Caribe on the beach in Juana Diaz, supporting the ministry, which provides local children with a week-long adventure camp most cannot afford.
Camp Ministry: Summer camps cannot happen without help from groups working to dramatically improve the facilities so they can better serve campers, rental groups, and other mission teams. You might do things like facilities maintenance, painting, light construction work, landscaping, cleaning, etc.
Build relationships and trade stories with everyone you meet. You’ll learn about Puerto Rican life and can share the love of Jesus with those who might not know Him or encourage someone who already does.
Community Outreach: There will probably be opportunities to help with manual labor and building relationships in homes in the nearby barrio, and work with other ministries in the area, such as an after-school center for kids in the barrio, a homeless ministry in Ponce, or a veterans home in Juana Díaz.
This trip is for your student ministry if:

Your students love playing with kids
Your students love being near the ocean
Your students enjoy Latin American culture, speak Spanish, or would love to learn
