THE GRENADINES DETAILED ITINERARY
ORIENTATION AT WINDSOR MOUNTAIN SUMMER CAMP
Join in the summer camp fun at Windsor Mountain for the first three days of this program. This is a great opportunity to connect with the Windsor Mountain community while taking the next step in your leadership training journey. Get to know your group, shadow a camp counselor, and begin to prepare for your journey. On day three, pack up and fly all together with your group to Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Once there, you will begin to get to know this unique cluster of islands, with team building and initiative games and then meet with a Peace Corp Volunteer for a brief introduction to the Caribbean- Island Culture 101.
COMMUNITY SERVICE & CULTURAL EXCHANGE, ST. VINCENT
After a few days in Kingstown, your group will travel to the small inland town of Lauders and settle in to life on ‘island time’. While there you will explore the hidden culture of the island by meeting new people, trying new foods, and learning to work efficiently as a group. Activities include swimming, bodysurfing, hiking La Soufriere Volcano, visiting Dark View Falls and the Owia Salt Ponds and finally relaxing at the beach. Based on what you have learned about the island, you will then work together as a team, along with local teens, to design and lead a Friendship Camp for children in the community where you will be living. The activities will range from field games, theater, sports and arts and crafts.
SERVICE AND EXPLORATION
After your incredible experience on St. Vincent, your group will head across the sea to Bequia, a small island just south of St. Vincent. Once there you will join the local school for a day of afterschool activities, volunteer at the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, snorkel, and unwind at the breathtaking Lower Bay Beach. Explore the differences of the two islands, their land, culture, and people.
PROGRAM WRAP UP
Gather your bags and head back through St. Vincent to Windsor Mountain! Enjoy time with your group participating in closure activities, debriefs and reflection on an amazing month in the islands. Share your experiences with the camp community and enjoy being back in New Hampshire.
