River to Sea Leadership Semester
Discover a unique tropical setting as you participate in our only Semester Program that offers a blend of cultural immersion, leadership training and water activities. You will get an all-encompassing experience in Central America by having immersive experience in three countries instead of one.
Challenge yourself by exploring some of the world’s best waves and whitewater as you become familiar with Outward Bound's unique philosophy. Train in four internationally-recongized certifications, including Waterfront Lifeguarding and Scuba Diving, as you immerse yourself in Central American culture.
Embark on a trek through the rainforests of Costa Rica to reach some of the country's world-renowned beaches where our instructors will provide insight the physics of waves, lunar phases, and weather systems. Courses are both for beginner surfers, who will learn how to pop-up, catch waves, and improve their board stance and students with previous surf experience, who will build on their skills and enjoy Costa Rica's famous warm-water breaks.
You will also get the chance to paddle down jungle rivers, and dive into crystal-clear Caribbean waters in the 68-island Archipelago of Bocas del Toro in Panama. If whitewater rafting, spotting sloths and sea kayaking sounds appealing, then this program is for you!
You can also earn 12 academic credits upon successful completion of course.
• Wilderness Advanced First Aid (Outward Bound Costa Rica)
• Whitewater Rescue Technician (Rescue 3 International)
• Scuba Diver Certification (National Association of Underwater Instructors)
