Pacific Discovery: Costa Rica Summer Program

Overview

Navigate through rainforests and marine reserves a journey of biodiversity, adventure, and insight.

This four-week summer program offers you an enriching and inspiring experience in Costa Rica. During the four weeks you will get to experience trekking through multiple National Parks, walking through clouds in the world-renowned Cloud Forest, volunteering in wildlife refuges and overnight camping in Rincón de la Vieja National Park. Get involved with a volunteer learning project at the Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center where you will get to provide service for those animals who are impacted by the illegal animal trade. After a week of hard work and animal snuggles, head over to Jaco beach where you will get to try your hand at surfing. This is no ordinary surf camp though; you will get one on one coaching with video analysis of how to improve your riding! This journey will end high up in the cloud in the incredible Monteverde Cloud Forest.  

Experience a summer program where you will not only get to explore this amazing country of Costa Rica, but you will get to expand yourself personally. The nature-based activities will have you challenging new heights, pushing through humidity amongst the clouds, feeling the rain forest watching you and seeing new wildlife. Your ability to manage trekking and overnight plans will greatly develop during this portion. With our service projects you will get to experience first-hand the impacts that you can make for other living creatures. Finally, learn (or improve on) a skill which will have you wanting to ride the surf of the ocean for the rest of your life!

This summer abroad program is suitable for high school graduates, gap year students, university students and graduates, ideally 18 – 24 years. Optional transferable academic credit is available on this program.
