2011 Ensenada Camp
Ensenada & Maneadero, Mexico
Description: Our home base for the week is a beach camp in Ensenada where everyone will sleep in tents, eat common meals, and meet in small groups. Ministry outreach will take place in the hills of Maneadero, a community within Ensenada populated by indigenous groups. Together, we will run ministry fairs which offer needed good and services to the community. Service and conversations take place within teams of students from different churches & countries.
It's been four years since we've held a camp in Ensenada. We will travel down the coast by bus with U.S. and Mexican youth and young adults to join with congregation members in the Ensenada area.
Dates: June 20 - 27, 2011
Cost: $350 covers all costs for the week
