The visits were made possible by Dr. Peter Germroth (HCC faculty).

Our Events

Costa Rica

In February 2017, Lee’s Upper School students will have an opportunity to visit this unique Hispanic country and explore its culture, wildlife, natural resources and environmental protection efforts. Students will visit several beautiful parks, experience volcanoes, waterfalls, bio-diverse rain-forests and an abundance of wildlife. There will also be physical activities, such as white water rafting, canopy zip lines and bathing in thermal springs. Most importantly, students will learn about the culture through contact with the locals, eating typical meals and participating in folkloric activities.
