Puerto Rico

Winter Baseball/Volleyball Mission Camp

Merging the Puerto Rican’s passion for baseball with a passion for Christ and His Church, FOCUS Missions together with Varsity Catholic is hosting a Catholic Baseball Mission Camp for boys and a Catholic Volleyball Camp for girls in rural Puerto Rico. In this community, we will run the camps for the local children with the aim of channeling their passion for sport to a passion for the Catholic Faith.  Our time in Puerto Rico will end with a tour of historic San Juan.

This trip will allow collegiate (and/or professional) athletes a chance to serve the poor in a radical way through mutual love of a sport.  As we work to demonstrate the benefit of bringing Faith to these two games, all trip participants will get a great opportunity to coach local youth, experience daily prayer, enter into the celebration of the Mass, and take in some beauty of the tropical Puerto Rico.

In this Varsity Catholic Mission Camp you will bring the love of Christ to children and young adults of Puerto Rico while sharing a mutual love of sport. This Baseball and Volleyball camp will teach the youth of Puerto Rico to use their God-given talents to glorify Him. As you catechize the youth, you will also get the chance to work among the poor embracing a culture that values relationships over the comfort of the world.

Varsity Catholic Mission Camps provide an extremely unique opportunity to bring your faith and sport together to serve impoverished youth around the globe. These trips are designed for student-athletes; they include hosting and facilitating a sports camp while sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. You will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach soon after you have been accepted on a mission trip to train and mentor you in each step along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.
