¡Vamos a la playa!
(Let's go to the beach!)
YOU'RE INVITED to join us as we travel to Rivas and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua August 1 - 8, 2020 where we'll experience world-class surfing and be a part of growing and establishing Young Life (Vida Joven) ministry in these coastal communities.
THE SAN JUAN DEL SUR AREA is known for its simple lifestyle, friendly people, beautiful beaches and some of the best surfing in Central America – adding up to being a great place for Young Life.
FOR BEGINNER TO EXPERIENCED SURFERS ALIKE, we'll spend our time on the beach and in neighborhoods with our Nicaraguan hosts, the local Young Life leaders and staff.
SURF & SERVE IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to try new experiences, expand your perspective, see first-hand what God is doing in Central America, and explore meaningful ways you can be involved.
TOGETHER we'll get to know the team of Young Life leaders and the teenagers they are reaching – we'll hear their stories, meet their families, and serve alongside them in contact work and club.
YOUR FAITH will grow as you experience walking alongside others in ministry, sharing life stories, serving at a local work project, time for personal reflection, and time with God.
WE'RE FORMING A TEAM of up to 15 people – individuals and groups welcome (13 years and older). No previous surfing experience is required – just an adventurous spirit willing to ride the wave.
SURF'S UP Saturday, August 1 - Saturday, August 8, 2020. Saturdays are travel days.
$850/PERSON INCLUDES 6 nights lodging at a hillside retreat center overlooking the Pacific, meals, surfing lessons, ground transportation, and day excursions. Price does NOT include international airfare. (See payment timeline below.)
RESERVE YOUR SPOT with a $425 non-refundable deposit. Registration closes March 31, 2020. Remaining payment of $425 is due on or before May 31, 2020.
