Program Overview

Program Description:

Complete your community involvement hours this summer in Costa Rica with Blyth Academy International Summers!

We have three community service opportunities to connect deeply with Costa Rica’s culture through volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation and education centre, a farm, and a charity focused on all different aspects of the country’s life. We begin in La Fortuna. From here, we’ll visit stunning waterfalls and swim in hot springs at the base of the volcano. We volunteer at Proyecto Asis’s Wildlife Rescue Center, where we will interact with the animals directly. Next, we’ll travel to Monteverde and volunteer at a sustainable farm called Life Monteverde, where we will learn how we can protect this beautiful environment before getting our hands dirty helping complete projects around the farm. Finally, we’ll head to the Guanacaste coast, where we’ll work closely with a community group, helping with meal planning and preparing dinner for local children.
