Youth Camp in Colombia 2016

Santander, Colombia

June 23, 2016 - 12:00am EDT to June 28, 2016 - 12:00am EDT

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.


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 whose priority is serving the needs of the campers. This camp is for bilingual or Spanish-speaking only attendees.

Activities and dorm life

Last year, we had an attendance of 19 campers from Colombia and Venezuela with a full array of Bible discussions or Christian living classes, song leading training, swimming, fútbol (soccer), volleyball, a dance, amazing race, a visit to PANACHI—Parque Nacional del Chicamocha, Bible skits and 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. Since our focus at camp is building life-long relationships with God and each other, each day will include an interactive compass check. Additional question-and-answer sessions (focusing on biblical and Christian living topics) will also be offered during camp. Along with several fun and challenging activities, extra time for fellowshipping and relaxing is added to make this camp experience a treat. Free time to enjoy talking with friends, old and new, is one of Colombia’s experiences that lasts a lifetime.

If you are interested in attending this small but intimate camp in the inviting country of Colombia, please contact camp director Scott Hoefker at or give him a call.
