Summer Mission Trip
Travel to Camp El Saucillo in Saltillo, Mexico as part of a youth and adult combo trip to provide infrastructure for the continued growth of this camp. We will finish the outfitting of the two manager’s houses, paint those houses, repair the eaves in the main camp community bathroom, expand finish and expand the work on the pavilion that houses conferences from 20-800 people.
The Current Need
Camp El Saucillo is in need of updating the housing for one of their onsite directors, Roberto, and his family. Roberto and Christie, and their children, Carlos and Jennifer, have been at Camp El Saucillo for eight years but as time has passed and the children have gotten bigger, they have outgrown their space and have been making life work between two housing units. We want to bridge the gap between these two homes and help them update the space to function better for their family.
We will also spend time finishing up the Hogan, a project we have worked on through the years. This building provides housing for volunteers, such as our team, but it is also a space that is rented out and used for businesses, churches, and other leadership needs and helps fund the camp.
The third area of focus for this trip, The Pavillion, is our next goal to complete, though it will take phases and stages to complete this awesome project. Our hope is to complete more work on the center section: installing eaves and funding the preparation step of leveling out the center conference flooring so it will be ready to be tiled on the following trip! Each trip we take and each task we complete goes to furthering the potential for events, rentals, and the reach of Camp El Saucillo.
Camp El Saucillo currently reaches close to two-thousand people a year through corporate leadership training, camps that help troubled teens become leaders instead of followers, missionary training camps, and survivor-like events all that leverage God’s truths to reach people for Christ and improve their lives. The work is growing!
The Overall Project
El Saucillo is a self-sustaining, Christian camp supported by rentals, events, and the gifts and volunteers of 20+ Mexican churches. Three Taverns partnered with El Saucillo nine years ago to provide construction expertise to provide housing, facilities, utilities, meeting spaces and 30+ survivor type training experiences. Our work at the camp is to help provide the infrastructure to support and expand the incredible work of the hundreds of volunteers at the camp. Infrastructure and training in-country volunteers to build and develop the camp is what El Saucillo needed. Every one of our teams is met with a larger volunteer team of our Mexican brothers and sisters to get the work done.
