Trips

Each year, several Solebury School teachers arrange exciting trips both abroad and within the United States to help broaden our students’ worldviews. The trips are usually planned to coincide with the shorter winter break and spring break.

"The trips to Quebec and France were great experiences. They were opportunities I never imagined having! Seeing the Eiffel Tower and interacting with French people expanded my enjoyment for the French culture and enhanced my use of the language. Quebec, though cold and snowy, was so much fun. The Winter Carnival was incredible! The food, the culture, and the experiences I had with friends on both of these trips made them memories I’ll never forget."

    There are still just a couple of spaces open for the trip to France in March, 2014. We will start our trip with a weekend in Paris, and then take the train to Toulouse, where teachers and students will be waiting for us and lead us to Campus Saint Christophe in Masseube. We will attend classes and participate in activities on campus, and we’ll also get to explore some of the local sites: The Basque country, the Pyrenees, and Toulouse. It will be an unforgettable experience.

    In November, we will also have the opportunity to meet fourteen St Christophe students, because they will be here on campus with two of our teachers.

    This trip is open to any student who is currently taking French or who has recently studied French.

  • Spanish Language and Community Service Trip to Nicaragua 2013-14

    Building upon last year’s successful trip, William Collier and Christine Le Gall will be leading a nine day trip to Nicaragua, Dec. 27 to Jan. 5. (Dates may change slightly depending on air fare.) Our goal is to provide students with an intense immersion experience in Spanish language and Nicaraguan culture, along with meaningful community service work. We will be working with the Spanish language school and community outreach center, La Mariposa, and staying in the neighborhood of San Caralampio where we stayed last year and made great friends!!! La Mariposa is located in the pueblo of La Concepción. Please check out La Mariposa’s website, which has a lot of information about its programs. http://mariposaspanishschool.com/

    For the first part of our stay, we will be at La Mariposa’s Learning Center, El Piscacho, and then we will move into homestays. William and Christine will be in San Caralampio for two weeks in June, arranging the community service program and meeting with the home stay families. In all cases, we will work with local people who will help us with our Spanish. During the week in Nicaragua, we will also be spending a day at El Nisperal, an organic coffee plantation and research center. http://nisperal.org/ The December-January dates will allow us to take part in the harvest.

    The trip is open to upper school students. Please apply early. Students who do not speak Spanish will be considered. Click here for form.
