Arapal Christian Camp, Inc. (Arapal) is the Philippine non-profit corporation umbrella under which most of the ministries supported by Shepherd’s Hill International are conducted.  Arapal has its own Board of Trustees and is led by its President Herman ‘Gerry’ Bastonero and Board Chair Dr. Elmer Palacio.  To assure good stewardship and accountability, Arapal makes financial and program reports to Shepherd’s Hill International. 


Though Arapal has an office in Cebu, Philippines, the actual camp property is located about two hours from Cebu in one of the poorest areas of the Philippine Islands.  It is from the camp that the goat program and many other agricultural-based programs are conducted, as well as numerous children's Bible classes and other spiritual ministries.
