Trip Details

Teacher's Responsibilities

Teachers work together with IEC staff before heading to Belize to ensure that students are properly prepared and the learning objectives have been incorporated into the itinerary. Once on the trip, teachers work with trip leaders and guides to ensure a smooth flow of activities. Typically, teachers will be involved with achieving the learning objectives of the trip, assigning sleeping arrangements, mustering students to staging areas for meals and activities and defining standards for accepted student behavior. 

Student Responsibilities 

Students should eagerly participate in activities and respond fully to direction from leaders, guides, and teachers. They will also assist with camp set-up and simple chores such as meal preparation and clean up.
