We send them to Costa Rica!
But seriously, there is nothing quite like a group of people working together in the outdoors to learn leadership (and life) lessons. So with this in mind, we have begun training our future Counselors in Training with Black Mountain Expeditions. We run two different leadership training ventures in both Costa Rica and in here in NC.
Our Black Mountain Expeditions staff recently led a nine-day, fun-filled adventure through the Costa Rican rain forest. We surfed, backpacked, rafted, and rappelled while visiting the village of Piedras Blancas and volunteered with the local community. The itinerary included exploring remote caves, rappelling down a waterfall, making sugar from sugar cane using a “trapiche”, rafting down the Savegre River, and surfing the waves of Manuel Antonio. Over the course of the expedition our future CIT’s grew in leadership and developed appreciation for Costa Rican culture.
Black Mountain Expeditions offers many different amazing trips such as this and we actually still have a few spots available for this summer for folks who aren’t a part of our CIT program. Give us a call or check out the website for more information.
