GRR in Costa Rica5 nights of the trip were spent at Baptist Camp Ochomogo. Visiting this camp brought back memories of 1990s when 10 groups from the GRR shared in construction of the camp.

Partnership projects currently included complete interior and exterior redecoration the Camp Ochomogo Lodge, exterior paint for the Bruns Cabin,  and assisting contractors as they replaced the roof and some of the roof structure on the Kokomo Cabin.  Group members  provided $8,000 for paint and paint supplies and for the roof of the Kokomo Cabin.
