2023 Summer Program

Travel through South America — a journey of thousands of kilometers in one short week. Start your journey in Puerto Rico and then embrace the culture of Cuba. Cruise over to Central America where you will take a look at the traditions of Guatemala. Hop on the Pan American Highway south through Panama and stop off in Bolivia en route to Argentina.

Stop in a big city inside each country that has both historic and modern buildings. Travel to the countryside and meet people in traditional garments. We will learn from the natural world of these majestic places.

Hear stories, learn games, and sing songs that are unique to each country. We will learn Spanish throughout the journey, and we will encounter other languages, too.

Make a large map of all of the countries we have passed — and some we didn’t have time to visit. Mark the mountains and rivers that have shaped the stories of the people we have met. Bring back journals and souvenirs from our travels around the region.
