German International School of New York



  • About
    The German International School of New York is returning for the second year to volunteer in Costa Rica. The group is led by Spanish teacher Mrs. Ellen Oswald. GISNY students will travel to Costa Rica from January 6-15, 2018. The group will stay at our private and safe home-base accommodations Cartago where our local professional staff provide all transportation, food, lodging, and activities. The group will be matched with a local daycare and elderly care center where they will spend each weekday morning completing valuable small construction projects and staff support. Each afternoon the group will embark on fun and engaging guided cultural and adventure activities around Cartago. On the weekend the group embarked on an overnight excursion to the Arenal Volcano National Park and Rainforest where they enjoy guided nature hikes, hot springs, and an exhilarating zipline excursion.
