Join us on a trip to Los Cedros, Nicaragua.

You will be so glad you did.

You are invited!

We partner with a Seattle-area church to schedule at least three short-term trips to Los Cedros every year, one in February for the beginning of the Nicaraguan school year, one in June or July about halfway through the school year, and one in early December to celebrate graduation at the end of the school year. 

All of these trips are suitable for individuals, couples, and families.  The February and summer trips are scheduled during local school district vacations.  Most trips are 7-10 days.  The majority of daytime hours are spent at Colegio Cristiano Havila interacting with the students and staff.  

If you are a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to meet your student and get to know him or her over a period of several days.  It is possible that you might also get to meet his or her parents or guardians.

The annual February trip is to meet and encourage the students and staff at the beginning of the new school year and to collect information and photos about them to be shared with their sponsors.

The annual summer trip is to deliver sponsors’ letters to the students, have the students write back to their sponsors, and bring those letters back to the U.S. for distribution to sponsors.

The annual December trip is to honor and celebrate with students who have completed each of Nicaragua’s major educational milestones:  preschool, sixth grade, and high school.

All trips are a lot of fun, and most team members find them to be powerful, life‑changing experiences.

Our teams will meet together and prepare for each trip in the Seattle area and/or by Zoom, and we depart from and return to Seattle.  Experienced travelers to Latin nations may be allowed to join us en route or meet the team in Nicaragua.
