Eureka Camps are a hands-on approach to academics in the outdoors. Eureka Camps endeavor to integrate facts, real time, and real consequences through activities to make education more dynamic and practical for children. Eureka Camps are tailored to the student/camper by the teacher/camp counselor.
It is an unfortunate statistic that the quality of education in certain parts of the world is deplorable. David and Karen Caldwell happen to be in one of those areas.
Camps International Presents Project Lighthouse: Expanding the Los Domos Training Base to Spread God’s Light Across Mexico
A lighthouse safely guides ships at sea so that they can continue on their journey. Our heart is to guide and disciple the next generation of church leadership so that they can be lighthouses in their own communities all across Mexico.
It’s with this passion and vision that we look for ways to reach more churches to assist them in the development of their own camps.

We are so grateful for your interest in our family and our ministry here in Mexico. Because of your faithful support and friendship, we’ve been able to develop Christian camps and train leaders who can use camp to build stronger relationships in their churches in Mexico.
We could not have done it without you.
We were without power and internet at Los Domos due to an Act of God. Our electrical system was hit with lightning over two weeks ago and we also lost internet completely at the time (it was hardly working at all even before that and still is having serious issues). Monday evening, I hooked up a temporary system that got provisional power back to my office area and re-energized the internet equipment.

One time, someone told me about the ordeal they had while renewing their American passport in the US. They had to go all the way to the Post Office to fill out the application. Fifteen minute drive, they said. Both ways, they said. A whole lunch break wasted, they said.
I laugh, not because I don’t understand the frustration, but because I do. Quite well. In fact, too well. Renewing passports is one of those necessary evils missionaries have to go through to stay in the country they’ve adopted as their own. Unless you’re lucky enough to still be dealing with visas, in which case, you’re in for an even more “enjoyable” treat in your country of residence.
One of my favorite memories as a kid is the feeling I would get when we’d all line up along the road after opening the gate for the pickup trucks with kids and counselors coming to camp. Knowing that we’d done it. We’d worked as hard as we possibly could and we’d pulled it off: camp.
I know those moments shaped me, the hard work and commitment my parents taught us as they strove to share the tool of Christian camping with the country of Mexico.
Camps International is excited to share with you the developments that are occurring through Christian camping. Thank you for being apart of the great work our volunteers are doing to share Christ and disciple His children. We need your help to get the word out about the incredible tool that camps are for the Church. We need able-bodied volunteers to speak up and share with the world what Camps International is all about. Will you help?
