Christian Camp Ministry

Our hope is to see the SIM Paraguay camp ministries expand. Camp is an important tool in reaching and discipling youth and leaders in Paraguay.  Our goal is to develop more effective camps for growth and outreach, utilizing the location, size and design of the camp property and buildings. 

The camp situated just south of Villarrica provides a more convient location for rural church plants while still being accessible from the capital Asuncion. The camp is being designed to host larger groups including to family camps, youth camps and our annual leadership retreat.
