COVID-19 Response

“When we evaluate our budget, there is always someone who says we can cut costs by doing our own food. To which I reply, “As a trip coordinator, Camping Pros is not about the meals. We could bring our own PB&J and survive for a week. Camping Pros is about the extra tents when we find, at the last minute, we are short sleeping space. It is the saltine crackers when half our crew is vomiting all over the place. It is the cooler space for refrigerated medication, the extra plastic bags when ours run out, the ice for throbbing, hammered thumbs, it is your crew saying “What can we do to help” when a crisis of any size comes up. It is my good night’s sleep knowing that I have a local support system to help me care for 21 teens and 5 adults in the middle of the desert, in a foreign country where I don’t speak the language.” Yes, everything went well on our mission trip to Mexico, and Camping Pros made it so. For that I thank you and look forward to working with you next year.”
