“I’ve been serving with Charlie since 2005 and I’m a huge supporter of the programs he continues to do for families throughout the Costa Rica Communities.  His passion and love for the people, especially the children, continues to lure me down there year over year to see all that God is doing through him as the hands and feet of Christ”.

Youth, College, Adult and Family Mission Trips to Costa Rica.

Strong Missions takes care of all the details so you can focus on serving and building relationships within your team and with the local community. Our services include building and planting vegetable gardens in public and special-needs schools and shelters, constructing churches and community playgrounds, and renovating and building homes for low-income families. We also continue to improve our mission site to better serve teams and reach out to area families and youth through empowerment programs. Trip participants are encouraged to distribute food and lead children's activities, as well as experience the culture through various optional activities. In addition, we organize sports and arts camps for those wishing to share their talents. Our Spanish/English-speaking coordinators and guides will take care of you from team registration to trip completion. We offer flexibility regarding your dates of travel and itinerary, and we give you many choices for your family or team trip. We reside in Costa Rica and can organize a trip with little notice. There are plenty of fun things to do in our area and throughout Costa Rica, and we're happy to discuss and arrange your fun trips, including hotels and tours, all at a significant discount off the provider's advertised price. We hope to be of service to you.
