Nigeria Workcamp registration is now open.

A team of volunteers will travel to Nigeria from Jan. 9-30 next year as part of an annual Nigeria Workcamp. Workcampers will worship, learn, create relationships, and work with Christians from Ekklesiyar Yan'uwa a Nigeria (EYN--the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) and with team members from Mission 21 in Switzerland. The group will work in Kwarhi, tour Kulp Bible College and Hillcrest School and other schools, and visit Yankari Game Reserve, the premier game reserve in Nigeria.

Cost will be $2,200 per person, which includes a round-trip flight to Nigeria, in-country meals, lodging, transportation, and overseas travel insurance. A deposit of $200 is required with registration. The workcamp experience is open to participants age 18 or older, those 14-17 years of age are able to participate if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who is participating in the workcamp. Requirements for participation also include a passport valid for at least 6 months after the workcamp, and up-to-date vaccinations for Nigeria as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
