Program Description
Experience the cultural adventure of a lifetime! Participants will spend ten days in the beautiful South Pacific Island country of Fiji. We will immerse in Fijian culture as we kayak to remote tribal villages and live, work and play with the tribal families. Throughout our journey, we will learn to cook with earth ovens, hike scenic trails for fresh fruit and snorkel one of the largest and healthiest coral reefs in the world.

Students will focus on enhancing individual and team performance, learn and apply appropriate leadership models and provide/receive structured feedback on their role and contributions within the group. Trip logistics will be outfitted by Tamarillo Active Travel who will provide us with local guides to teach us about life in Belize.
