United Youth Camps

Camp San Gil, Colombia

June 21, 2018 to June 26, 2018

We will be returning to Hotel San Gil del Campo, located in San Gil, Santander, Colombia, between Bucaramanga and Bogotá.

Cost and Transportation

The cost of the camp will run U.S. $250 per person, which does not include airfare and transportation to and from the camp. Arrival from international areas by airline is possible through the El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá. There is no tuition fee for staff. Partial scholarship for staff airfare may be available.


Ages for campers are 12-18 years old. Adults who are at least 18 years old and graduated from high school are encouraged to apply as staff. We are looking for mature, energetic and engaging staff members whose priority is serving the campers. This camp is for bilingual or Spanish-speaking only attendees.

Activities and Dorm Life

Last year, we had an attendance of 16 campers from Colombia and Venezuela. Our days were kept full with a full array of activities, including Bible discussions or Christian living classes, swimming, Frisbee football, capture the flag, dance class and a dance, amazing race, a visit to Cascadas de Juan Curí, Bible skits, plus plenty of free time to relax and fellowship, including the sought after “mid-afternoon siesta.” This year we plan to have many of the same activities.

Our focus is building lifelong relationships with God and each other, each day will include an interactive compass check. Question-and-answer sessions will also be offered at camp. Along with several fun and challenging activities, extra time for fellowship and relaxing is added to make this camp experience a treat. Free time to enjoy talking with friends is one of Colombia’s experiences that lasts a lifetime.

If you are interested in attending this small but intimate camp, please contact Scott and Gayle Hoefker.
