Sports Camps

“On this trip, I was overwhelmed with an atmosphere of love. Since we couldn’t verbally communicate much, due to the language barrier, I was more aware of actions and emotions of my own and of others. The Puerto Rican community absolutely showed me how love can be communicated without speaking a single word. This is something I have kept in my heart, and have tried to make it a part of my every day.” 

– Carli Albrecht, Belmont Abbey College

  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.

“Leading up to the trip I prayed a rosary every day, dedicating each decade to different groups/intentions (ex. the people of Puerto Rico, my mission partners, open hearts, etc.). While in Puerto Rico, I was surprisingly able to let go and forget about everything that had been troubling me. I truly felt the graces of peace and love flowing out throughout the entire trip. Every day that I think about Puerto Rico, I get a sense of peace that washes over me; I know I will always be called to serve God’s people! The two best and most fruitful parts of the trip for me were the daily holy hours/Mass, as well as the conversations we had with the other missionaries and religious brothers we had with us (Br. Mark-Mary and Br. Lazarus) from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Learning from and witnessing other athletes like me from around the country was really encouraging, and now we have a wider base of friends and resources!”
