Check out photos and a quick summary of what each group has been up to this summer! We have more photos on our Facebook page and Instagram, and will continue to post photos and updates so check back regularly.
The crew in Alaska has been enjoying the land of the midnight sun as they learn carpentry skills in Tetlin village. They’ve just wrapped up their ice climbing trip, and look forward to backpacking next week.
The BVI group has been getting plenty of time on the water! They had beach games on the 4th, went snorkeling and SCUBA diving, and spent time swimming with adults with autism (always a favorite service activity).
The Dominican Republic teens have really been putting their Spanish to use playing with local kids. They’re also building additional classrooms to expand the capacity of a local school.
Students in Ecuador have been hard at work laying a rock and concrete foundation for a school as well as painting murals in the school building. They’ve enjoyed soccer with some local kids as well as cow milking, weaving, and Salsa lessons!
The Guadeloupe crew has spent time working with the Organisation National des Forêts painting wooden gazebos to protect them from salt water spray. They also worked to move fallen coconut leaves to protect turtles and their nests. Everyone’s French is improving!
The Montana Blackfeet group had a great hike up to Appistoki Falls in Glacier National Park (pictured). They have been working on their carpentry skills back at home base and building a Sun Dance lodge with community members.
The Peru group has been practicing their Spanish and been hard at work on an irrigation project. Everyone is excited about the upcoming trip to Machu Picchu this weekend!
