Highlands Nicaragua, known to the Nicaraguan people as “Centro ABEM”, was purchased in October of 2002. The property contains 160 acres of land 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. Surrounding these buildings are 130 acres known as “Finca ABEM”, Centro ABEM’s working farm known, filled with pineapples, bananas, sorghum, beans, cucumbers, corn and other fruits and vegetables. Finca ABEM grows and sells these products in an effort to help support the camp ministry.
Walking 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 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.
