Our mini trips are now closed. This includes our Twilight trip to Forks, Washington. We will be back with fun filled weekends in the Spring!
The culture classes serve the purpose of diminishing culture shock for the students and for everyone to get to know all the people they will be traveling with on the trips. IDs, itineraries, and any other information are also distributed throughout the culture class duration. During the two to three months that the classes are going on the kids learn a bit of the country's language and customs. We even take the time out and learn how to make one of the country's main food dishes. For example, the trip to Hawaii the students make Haupia (A traditional Hawaiian coconut flavored dessert that is best described as a "stiff pudding"). All materials for the class are provided for the students and are included in the cost of the trip.
