This winter, Lake Land College is hosting its eighth annual Belize Adventure. An informational meeting for the trip will be held Thursday, September 8th at 5:30 p.m. in the West Building, room 119 on campus in Mattoon.
Trip coordinator and horticulture instructor Dyke Barley will be available to answer questions about the trip at that time.
“Participants on the trip will experience firsthand one of the most unique areas on the planet during this short-term study abroad opportunity,” said Barkley.
During the trip, scheduled for January 2 – 7, 2017 participants will experience a variety of activities including: visiting a citrus farm, botanical garden and green iguana sanctuary; hiking in the jungle in the daytime and nighttime; exploring a Mayan ceremonial cave and archeological sites; and traveling to cities to visit markets and experience local culture.
The cost of the trip includes lodging and meals at the Sibun Education/Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge, located south of Belmopan, the capital city, airfare and ground transportation, and all entrance fees and guide services for expeditions led by local guides.
This trip is open to students and the public alike and participants will earn two hours of college credit through the short-term study abroad program at Lake Land.
The complete cost for the trip is $2,075. Payment in the amount of $1,100 is due on Sept. 19 to secure airfare. Participants will need a valid U.S. passport to gain entry to Belize.
