Base Camp

I firmly believe that iGo’s best asset is their teaching and training. It not only impacts your cultural adaptation and spiritual life overseas, but the intentionality of your life wherever you live.

Jordyn P

The name Base Camp comes from mountain climbing. Before climbing a large mountain, climbers spend a significant amount of time near the base of the mountain to prepare, train, and get acclimated to the elevation. Similarly, iGo requires all trip participants to participate in a stateside training, called Base Camp, prior to departure. This training is a key part of the iGo experience and focuses on spiritual preparation, cross cultural training, and team building.


Volunteers Needed!
