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.

We will have access to actors from the plays as well as joining some acting workshops. Join for some (positive) drama!

California Service Adventure Intensive
Experience the bounty of California and Nevada’s most magical landscapes as you not only see them, but also help to improve them!  In this intensive you will be challenging yourself in a variety of physical activities including:  whitewater Kayaking in Cache Creek, backpacking along Point Reyes National Seashore, learning to surf the epic waves of California’s coastline and much more!  You will also be helping the community and gaining vast community service experience and hours.  Some of the community service projects will include: a conservation project in Lake Tahoe, serving meals to San Francisco’s homeless, and helping out and learning what it means to be a Scientist at the Marine Mammal Center.  All together you will rack up over 20 hours of community service while also exploring the great outdoors.
Cost of trip:  $2000 + airfare (price includes everything except souvenirs)
