Next Year Intensive Travel Opportunities

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Interested in traveling next year during Intensives?  Four trips are being planned for next year-sailing in the Caribbean, skiing/snowboarding at Whistler, Shakespeare Festival at Ashland, OR, and a California Service Adventure.  Here is a preview of what trips are being planned.

Winter 2012
Learning to Sail in the Caribbean!
For this December 2012 Intensive, students will be traveling island to island through the Caribbean on a sailboat.  This is not a sailing cruise, but rather a hands on learning experience where students will be members of the crew and learn all aspects of sailing including navigation, rigging, weather, and more.  They will also study marine science, leadership skills, and learn about the culture and history of the islands that we visit along the way.  Daily activities will include sailing, hiking, snorkeling, and much more.
