Turtle Rescue Camp & Adventure

CDA_9215

Learning Spanish through true cultural immersion is the goal of our Teen Service and Turtle Rescue Camp. Costa Rica is blessed to have a stable economy and government as well as a healthy and happy populous. It is one of the most biodiverse, ecologically friendly places on earth. Still, there are plenty of opportunities for volunteers to make a difference, save endangered species and help isolated communities become more self-sufficient.

These are the goals of our camp!

In the morning students will do trail repair and maintenance. These forests are teaming with wildlife including three different types of Monkeys. After lunch there will be a boat tour of the canals and a visit to the turtle egg incubation center. After dinner at the camp dining hall, students will go out for a night turtle nesting tour. Here they will see turtles come up to the beach, create their nests and lay their eggs.

Saturday, students will take a hike through the rainforest to the northern reserve station. They will be guided throughout by a licensed naturalist who will point out the multitude of wildlife native to the tropical rainforest. They will have lunch and continue maintenance and repair of trails and facilities. In the late afternoon they will return to the camp compound by boat. After dinner the students again head out to the beach to help protect the nesting sea turtles.
