Proposal for Eco-Educational Adventures in Costa Rica
My name is --------------, and I am part of a Costa Rica-based company called Infinite Forest. We specialize in service-learning eco-educational adventures in Costa Rica.
Our trips combine education, adventure, and community service in a safe and well-organized environment. One day the students might hike through a tropical rainforest full of howler monkeys, the next day they might build a well with a local Indigenous tribe. What differentiates our trips from others is their depth--
because our staff consists of bilingual local naturalist guides and Americans like myself who call Costa Rica home, we offer a unique opportunity for first-hand exposure to the culture through experiences in nature, working alongside local people, and home stays. Teachers have raved that their students come back changed, aware of the world in a way that they weren’t before. As you might imagine, this awareness enhances the classroom experience far beyond the end of the trip. One of the letters we received from teachers is attached to this email.
The trips themselves range from 8 to 14 days and can accommodate any group size. We customize trips based on the desires of the group; a sample itinerary is attached. The trip costs are all-inclusive except for airfare, and kept low to allow students from diverse backgrounds to participate. We can also assist your group with fundraising efforts. We know how hard teachers work; to reward teachers for coordinating a group, a teacher’s trip in Costa Rica is free with a group of 10 or more students. We have been organizing trips for many years now and have a streamlined planning process that makes coordination simple.
If you would like, I can call you in the next few days to see if you have any questions about the program. In the meantime, feel free to browse our Web site at www.infiniteforest.com. If you feel that our program and your students are a good match, we can offer them the learning experience of a lifetime.
All the best,
