(C.A.M.P.) is an incorporated 501(3c) non profit organization seeking to promote missions in Central America. It was conceived under the leadership of Pastor Dan Vititoe who has been bringing teams to Nicaragua, El Salvador & Costa Rica since 1975. Dan Whitlock is President of C.A.M.P. Several work teams go each year to work on various projects, including construction projects at several churches, a Baptist camp in the mountains, an orphanage, and CEDCAS health clinic. A construction project is currently underway at the Santo Tomas Church. According to the CAMP bylaws one of the most important agreements has been to see that all funds (100%) that have been given for a specific project will be given (100%) as designated. They have needs for tools, Sunday school materials, medical supplies, funds for supplies, etc.

CEDCAS, the Spanish initials for Health Training Center, has prevention as the first priority. They work in prevention, community development, public health and water systems, working with the community to train health promoters. Lillian Solt is the General Director for CEDCAS. Lillian combines preventative and curative aspects of ministry with evangelism in a three-story health center that is under construction in the San Jose suburb of Los Lagos. “We have grown from two doctors to 14 specialties, four dentists, maxi facial surgeons and others,” she explains. “We have every specialty except cardiology.”   The CEDCAS clinic is nestled in the middle of a sprawling neighborhood, immediately accessible to the area’s residents. Inside the new building will be a myriad of facilities from optical and dental clinics to surgery suites, recovery rooms and a counseling center. In addition to the new clinic, Lillian continues to work with pastors and clinics throughout Costa Rica, helping with rural bakeries, water projects and development plans. Operating a clinic and other development programs involve many resources and people. Lillian is still looking for funds to help finish the construction project. “We also need people to come as missionaries to help us with general maintenance,” she says. “We need a technician who could fix all of our medical equipment and people in general construction.” Doctors and nurses cannot obtain permission to practice in Costa Rica. “I probably won’t see all of the results that I have struggled for all of these years,” Lillian says. Nevertheless, she is moving forward to reach people for Christ through health care.
