Island DTS

Adventures With God


Our Vision

The Island DTS is exclusively run in Panama in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago.
This school is strategically located near one of our target coastal people groups, the Ngobe Indians. This remote DTS is for those who thrive on following God anywhere, anytime, to share with anyone!

Our Focus

On an island in the Panama jungle, surrounded by Ngobe Indian tribes, you can find our Outpost Panama-base with our own dock and boats. Surrounded by untouched nature our base sleeps forty people. We catch our own rainwater, use solar power for our electricity, and live only a short ride away from beaches and awesome surfing, fishing and diving. Where else can you go for a DTS experience like this? On this DTS you’ll live isolated from the urban society, and at the same time live just a 20 minutes fast boat ride from an airport with up to three flights a day from Panama City. Where else can you go for a DTS experience like this?
