We are a free multi-purpose camp focused on reaching children in need. Our vision is to bring the gospel of Jesus's love to children throughout Costa Rica and beyond. We invite you to become part of our CPCR family by:

Full capacity expected for January 2023 Camps

We thank God for helping us work through these last few difficult years and bringing the camp back to full capacity. This means we anticipate:

  1. Receiving over 500 children at camp from January 4- February 4 2023
  2. Serving over 100 individuals at each meal
  3. Having a full mission house with mission teams from churches and a family group
  4. Welcoming campers from 15 distinct communities

We appreciate your prayers for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on this harvest season!

I Love to Tell the Story

I Love to Tell the Story

Paul has seen first-hand that there is much more that can be done to directly impact the neighborhoods with the power of the gospel where the campers live. There is great hunger for the gospel in Costa Rica and Latin America. Paul's vision is to participate more in the growth of the family of our Lord, and his first book, entitled I Love to Tell the Story, will help to grow his vision. His book is available on Amazon.

The Story of CPCR Amphitheater

Once upon a time I had a vision to build an amphitheater at the Camp since the campers love Christian dramas so much and our staff loves to display their acting talent under the direction of Crizzley.

Before 2017, we were having these dramas in our multipurpose room but there is very little room there to do any dramas. In fall 2017, a mission team from New Zealand said they would like to come to the camp to help with any projects I had. I had no drawings for an amphitheater but this fabulous group constructed an amphitheater, which became phase 1, We inaugurated the amphitheater in June 2018 and have used it with every camp since July 2018.

In 2019, I realized and envisioned a backside of the amphitheater to have space for costumes and props, a meeting area and an entrance for the staff onto the stage. Plans were drawn for a large expansion We presented this plan to you, our supporters, and God Bless you, you gave us funding for phase 2 of the amphitheater!

After a long delay, we finally are using your donations to complete phase 2 with space for all of what I had envisioned. Thank you everyone for your support on this much needed expansion. God bless you.
