The Highlands camp in Nicaragua, known to the Nicaraguan people as “Centro ABEM”, was purchased in October of 2002. The property contains 160 acres of land, and is located 12 miles from the center of Managua on the new highway to Leon.
The camp buildings are located in the middle of the property and occupy approximately 30 acres of the property. Surrounding these buildings are 130 acres of land filled with pineapples, bananas, sorghum, beans, cucumbers, corn and other fruits and vegetables that Centro ABEM produces on their working farm known as “Finca ABEM”. Finca ABEM grows and sells these products in an effort to help support the camp ministry.
In a walk around the camp you will encounter a large multipurpose/gym, a seminary/classroom building with air-conditioned conference room, a dining hall kitchen, two large cabins and four small cabins, which can sleep a total of 120 people. The camp facility is also equipped with regulation size baseball and soccer fields, a softball field, outdoor volleyball court, Olympic size swimming pool, and two roofed rancho buildings. The property includes sheltered picnic areas and many trees under which campers can relax.
