Lawrence H. Hyde '42 Center for Global Education

Costa Rica

In collaboration with Explorica Tours, the Hyde Center is happy to once again offer an end of year travel opportunity to Costa Rica!  All Arrupe students are eligible to apply.  Applications for this program and enrollment information can be found here.
BC High faculty/staff will lead the trip and students will travel to a volcano and hot springs, kayak across a lake, visit a local school, and zip line through the tropical forest. They will also study a broad range of flora, fauna, and ecosystems at Costa Rica’s national parks, institutes, and reserves.
