We are privileged to host a group of 10 from Camp Bighorn, Plains Montana for the third year in a row. Check out their website, we are involved with giving their gap program, entitled Journey, a week of orientation to Mexico and Mexican culture. If you’re a young person looking for a dynamic year of discipleship through adventure after high school and before college, check out Camp Bighorn’s Journey Program.
This year was full of fun and activity. During their short time here we’ve visited Paso de Cortez, between two nearby volcanoes, driving to above 12,000 ft.
Other side trips included a trip to a rural Mexican high school and a visit to Mexico City’s downtown area, including the zócalo, Que Bo chocolates, Santa Clara ice cream, Bellas Artes and more.
The group had to figure out some urban challenges, among them going from near downtown to the Basilica of Guadalupe on the Metro, and of course the food challenged, featuring Samuel and 20 weird foods that even a Mexican might not eat! And no Mexican orientation would be complete without a lot of food and food with the Mexican church!
