Camp Needs & Projects

As you know, camps are always maintaining existing facilities or making improvements!  We do this so current and future campers can continue to enjoy their experience.  Many of these projects are accomplished by mission teams from North America. As you read about El Jardin Sagrado, perhaps the Lord put it on your heart to bring a mission team to help with our facility OR as you read through this list of needs, pray that God will direct you in an area that you could possibly help. Above all, El Jardin Sagrado is on the frontlines of a spiritual battle. Our greatest need is for your intercession and prayers- for direction, provision, protection, health, divine appointments, boldness, etc.
Thank you for taking the time to pray and consider your involvement with El Jardin Sagrado: Dedicated for the glory of God.   Listed below are a few camp needs:

Camp vehicle – current van is disintegrating fast! Cost is about $20,000 (We often say that it is a great place for prayer- pray that we make it up the hill and down the road.)

Multi-purpose flooring for Celebration Center – keeps dust down, helps with sound during events – Costs are about $6,000

Roof and security reinforcement for office building- Costs are TBD

Improvements to a missionary house– roof, kitchen renovation, exterior stairs- $3000

Appliances  Refrigerator-Intern Cabin #8, Stove- missionary 

house, Washer and dryer- main office 

Mattresses 2 or 3 double or queen-sized mattresses. 10-15 twin sized mattresses. Many of the mattresses are old and are in great need of being replaced. About ¾ of them had the old fabric removed then were re-covered August 2018, but some need more than just a new cover, they need to be replaced.

A few improvements: (aka- possible team projects!)

-New Rancho between main office building and Cabin #1

-Fencing to replace some old and compromised areas around the circumference of the property

-Foot bridge between camp property and a mission house- to avoid walking on the road when it is dark.

-Screens on windows of 2 cabins

-Outdoor seating with benches – enough to seat 40-60 people or more

-Pool Deck behind pool. It is currently a 2-3 ft. drop over the back edge.

-Campfire area closer to main camp area

-Repaint Celebration center interior and roof- Due to the location in the tropics, continued maintenance and painting is necessary for maintaining the buildings.

Some nice to haves:

-Picnic tables 5-10- more

-Ping pong table and accessories

-10-15 cots for overflow sleeping accommodations= more rental income

-New pillows, sheets, blankets and bath towels for North American teams. (Costa Rican groups furnish their own bedding, etc.)

-Basketball  half-court- including hoop and net
