The next morning they will have breakfast and relax while they wait for the other students to arrive.

We volunteer at a local orphanage three times each week. The other afternoon each week we volunteer at the government senior home. At the orphanage we will do a service project as well as play and interact with the children. At the senior home we read and play games. All of these activities are in Spanish.

All activities are scheduled for the dates and times listed, but are subject to change due to weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. In case of a tour or activity being changed, we will do our best to reschedule. If a tour/activity must be cancelled and cannot be made up, there is no refund.
