Comprehensive face to face language and leadership immersion

The tour itinerary is well planned. The tour starts off with a team bonding and planning, and then transitions to running the summer camp. During the summer camp, the kids are happy to be spending the day with the volunteers. The volunteers run group activities ranging from outdoor events to indoor events like art. Most of the kids had some to none English language skills, so Spanish skills would be helpful but not completely necessary. Gestures and patience will be fine. After a quite exhausting week of running camp, volunteers will be treated to a couple days of enjoying Costa Rica's beaches before going home.
This camp option is great for:
- Getting a massive chunk of community service hours (~60)
- Spanish language immersion
- Developing/refining team collaboration skills
- Breaking your fear of bugs
- Eating lots of rice and beans
