Mission Trip - Costa Rica - FULL

Costa Rica Highlight 1 from CCV Students on Vimeo.Password is "rica".  


CCV is proud to be partnering with the Christian Light Foundation in Costa Rica.  They have a large community development initiative that serves local Costa Ricans through churches, education, and camps all for the purpose of sharing the Gospel and making disciples in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras. They have invited CCV to come visit and work along side their team!  In the summer of 2018, we'll take two trips to make an even bigger impact with families - activities, teaching, and work projects.

Trip Leaders: CCV Staff

Training Dates: Saturdays, April 14, April 28, May 12.

Terms and Conditions: By registering for this trip and paying the non-refundable deposit of $100 at this time, you are also committed to joining the team, attending the required team meetings, and paying the remainder of the cost of the trip before the trip's departure date. Failure to comply with these terms, completing the volunteer application process or attending the trainings gives CCV the freedom to ask you to not participate in the trip. The trip leader reserves the right to ask any participant to not participate if they feel the integrity of the trip is in jeopardy. If the trip participant backs out of the trip after airline tickets have been purchased in their name, they will still owe CCV for the cost of that ticket. If a participant is asked to end their trip early, they will travel home at their own cost.
