We have several trip options available, explore the options below

VBS

Campamento de Ninos is the Pura Vida Missions' version of vacation Bible school. It's our vision to teach the children of Costa Rica to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus honored children and calls us to care for the least, the last and the lost. Our curriculum is designed to help you assist us in discipling children. You can help us do this by doing Campamento de Ninos in a fun and exciting way with puppets, games, Bible lessons, testimonies, music, crafts and more.

Surf & Serve

Costa Rica is known for it's surfing. If you have a team of 20 or less that is interested in surfing and also serving God then let us know. We believe that God created us so that we can combine our passions with our ministry to the world. At Pura Vida Missions, we love to surf and even more importantly we love to serve God by serving people. If you are interested in combining construction or VBS with surfing give us a call. We can make it happen.

Construction

During our 2007 ministry we installed over 45 new floors, replacing the dirt floors these families were living on. We are currently helping a local Pastor (Pastor Carlos), who are staff have been investing in by training leaders, build a church in a very poor area call Linda Vista. We also build bunk beds for families and home repairs. If your group has a construction team then we can put you to work.

Teen Ministry

Many teens in Costa Rica have to drop out of school to work and help provide money for their families or they simply can't afford to continue their education. There is a high teenage pregnancy rate in Costa Rica and drug use is on the rise. Participate in ministry with teenagers through sports and evangelism. Often times, just taking the time to participate in activities with the youth in Costa Rica opens the doors for you to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
