These activities, found in each of our courses, results in experiential education that facilitates personal growth in the following areas:
Demonstrating increased self-confidence and self-actualization
Demonstrating compassion toward others and living a healthy and balanced life
Demonstrating the ability to set goals, and inspire and guide others to achieve them
Demonstrating the ability to collaborate, communicate, and resolve conflicts effectively
Demonstrating social and environmental responsibility
Actively engaging in service to others
Demonstrating success against traditional measures of school achievement
Connecting concepts and Spanish learned in the classroom with real life experiences
Students have the option of choosing hiking and surfing in Costa Rica or scuba diving and sea kayaking in Panama. Students also choose how long they wish to stay with us and can combine courses that allows them to experience all OBCR offers. Courses are typically two weeks in length, but students can choose to combine our courses and stay as long as seven weeks this summer.
For all courses, students fly into and out of San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO).
