During the first week of i-Impact Camp, students will be exposed to real world issues through lectures, non-profit tours, and team dynamics to create a business plan that will be presented to investors and non-profit executives.
Week #2: Dominican Republic
Service Trip provided by BLUE Missions
Students will fly with their camp mates to the Dominican Republic to participate on a service trip in a rural community. During the remaining 8 days of camp, students will work alongside of families in the community to construct 16-18 bathrooms. In addition to working, there are several activities that allow the students to interact with the locals and truly engage in the culture of the Dominican Republic. This trip will allow students to see the impact a non-profit organization can have on individuals in our global communities.
