Join us on our journey to Guatemala to deepen your relationship with others, yourself and God. Immerse yourself in the culture and practice your language skills as we live with host families in Antigua and work with host families in the surrounding villages to build homes and outdoor kitchens. Trip is open to students currently in grades 9, 10 and 11.
In teams of about seven students and one BSM chaperone, students will work with a local mason and the recipient family to build a home and an outdoor kitchen. While the mason guides the process, the students do all of the work by hand. The workday will be approximately from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
In order to learn about Guatemala and appreciate all of the natural beauty and history that it has to offer us, we will also participate in several cultural excursions:
- Antigua – colonial city
- Iximche – Mayan ruins
- Lake Atitlán – volcanic lake
- Chichicastenango – handicrafts market
