IMG_20111028_195818This trip has just been announced!  Joe’s daughter insisted on joining him for his next trip to Nicaragua.  Then a couple of other guys asked if they could bring their teenagers, too.  So we decided to open this up as a special trip for fathers and their teens.  Joe and his daughter will guide the group through Ticuantepe, Masaya, and Tipitapa, three very beautiful and friendly areas of Nicaragua.

The service focus will be on the needs at Escuela Cristo Rey.  Service projects may include games or teaching opportunities with school children, assistance with a library project, assistance with a before/after-school program, assistance with a technical-skills program for secondary students.  Other service opportunities are likely to emerge during the trip.

Activities may include a trip to a volcanic lake, zip lining through a jungle canopy, hiking through a nature reserve, horseback riding, and volcano boarding.  This trip will include time for reflection and reconnecting with our teenagers.
