Spring Break Service Trip: Bahamas (Annual Trip - Celebrating 15 Years in 2018)

Join us as we venture out to New Providence Island in the Bahamas! You will receive training on facilitation of teambuilding activities, youth programs and fitness education. We will work with Uriah McPhee Primary School to provide activities and programs using portable equipment including ropes, hula hoops, throwables and anything else needed to provide the atmosphere of fun. The focus is to provide life skills such as communication and respect through activities while having as much fun as possible. You will interact with children, teachers and parents and have the opportunity to experience the real Bahamas! Total Cost: Estimated trip fees are $850-$1000. This includes training, lodging, ground transportation, flight and some meals. This trip cost is based on the amount of fundraising the group chooses to do.
