This camp is designed to build the following character traits:
Curiosity: Curiosity about yourself and the world around you is key to success at this camp--you'll be encouraged to think more deeply on what it means to be a global citizen and your place in the world.
Independence: Nothing encourages independence like international travel! Gain the confidence to travel away from your family and navigate a new culture.
Bring your leadership skills to the next level! This experience is ideal for adventurous middle school / junior high students looking to make new friends, lend a hand on education and community initiatives, and explore a new place known for its incredible wildlife. Learn from local leaders and meet teens from across North America (and the world!) as you spend two weeks working, playing, and learning together.
In the mornings, we'll wake early and head to the service site, where we'll engage in a variety of projects from sea turtle conservation tasks to trash pickup to community infrastructure restoration. After lunch, enjoy our beautiful Home Base, explore the ocean, take a traditional cooking class or hear from local leaders and professionals on a variety of topics. We'll also dive deep to discover our individual paths, including exploring our leadership styles and professional and educational goals for the future.
