Matagalpa 066Join us for a week in August for family-based service and cross-cultural learning.  Trips will be based in the quaint and quiet beach town of San Juan del Sur, vibrant and culturally rich Masaya, or mountainous and bustling city of Matagalpa.  The service focus will depend on the specific location of your trip and the particular interests of the group, and may include:

Assisting with before or after-school programs for local students.
Assisting with the development of a library project.
Visiting and helping students with special needs.
Serving at a soup-kitchen.
Assisting with food distribution in an impoverished community.
Assisting with church building projects.

In addition, families will have opportunities to hike through nature reserves, observe exotic wildlife, surf down a volcano, ride a zip line, and many more.  Each trip is unique.
