All About La Finca


Using the relational model, our approach is to contact youth where they are, in their own milieu, in their own cultural and relational language.  We build a relationship and invite a young person to attend our club where they have extreme fun, and encounter the powerful message of the gospel.  Our camping ministry is an extension of our club work where we invite youth to the best week of their life.  Here, in the stunning mountains of Jinotega, they experience the beauty of God’s creation, opportunities to be challenged spiritually, great food and hilarious fun.  For many, our camp may be the first time they have used a flush toilet or had 3 square meals.  Also, for many, our camp is holy ground, for it is the place they often associate with their decision to become a Christ follower.  We continue our discipleship through additional camps, local Bible studies, leadership training, and personal growth.

Our camp doubles as a working farm where we grow and sell world-class coffee—the profit of two bags of coffee goes to send one Nicaraguan youth to a camp for a day.  Additionally, we have a steady stream of North American mission teams visit, who experience a deep transformation that radically affects their own churches in the states.  

​A Brief History

La Finca began in 1992 when one building served 30 people as the dorm, kitchen, club room, bathroom, gym, game room, etc. Today, through the hard work of volunteer Nicaraguans and North Americans, the camp can host 350 guests. Currently we host 16 Young Life camps (new kids, follow-up, growth, and training), 14+ weeks of mission teams, and as many Nicaraguan church groups and NGOs as we can.  Our camp has an occupancy of 87% year round.
