Hontoon Island Excursion (October 9-12, 2014)

  • Location: DeLand, Fla.
  • Cost: Free (12 student limit)

This trip is our newest addition to the alternative break experience. Participants will stay in a local setting, but will also get off campus and take some time to get to know more about each other and the community they're living in. This trip is free for the first 12 students who sign up to participate! The focus of this experience will be community and economic development with a sub-focus of environmental awareness. Participants will be staying on Hontoon Island, which means there will be camping involved, as well as tons of other exciting outdoor activities!
