Costa Rica Alternative Spring Break 2018

March 17th - 25th 2018
Applications due Wednesday, November 22nd at noon

Join other Caltech students for a conservation focused spring break trip. On the Costa Rica trip we will be working with a host organization OSA Conservation which is dedicated to protecting the globally significant biodiversity of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula.  Don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to explore another part of our planet and make a tangible difference in the world.
Trips fees include transportation, lodging, and most food.  The Costa Rica Alternative Spring Break trip is coordinated by the Caltech Y and has been made possible thanks to generous funding from the Frank and Elsie Stefanko Fund, the George Housner Fund, Caltech Student Affairs, and the Caltech Y.  Spaces are limited.
