Costa Rica, 2018
Students will participate in athletic events in an effort to build relationships with the local population and participate in evangelism.
Who is this ENGAGE experience for?
Anyone who is athletic or active, enjoys being with kids and interacting with people, and/or wants to step outside their comfort zone. The primary sports are soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball.
What will team members do?
VC is partnering with High Performance Sports Costa Rica (www.hpscostarica.com) during Spring Break. This trip is primarily a sports ministry and we are encouraging our volleyball, soccer, and basketball teams to participate in this trip. Students will compete against some of the local teams in Costa Rica in one of the aforementioned sports. Students will be able to build relationships with the local community and also serve in various capacities ranging from educational talks, painting classrooms, visiting orphans, and/or other mercy ministry opportunities. Students will spend a few days seeing some of the national parks, beaches, farms, and waterfalls of Costa Rica. This trip is available to 15-17 students.
