Jungle Surf Camp - it's so much more.
This program is run by the dynamic Chris Patterson who has been our Costa Rican partner for over 10 years.
Chris has run travel and Spanish
courses since the 1990’s and has become increasingly passionate about
the crisis of plastic waste in our waters and the damage it is doing.
Seeing dolphins and turtles time and time again, washed up on the
shoreline wrapped up in discarded fishing nets was enough to break him
So, Chris now welcomes volunteers into his home,
lovingly named the Jungle Surf Camp, who will set about learning Spanish
with the aim to get out into the community to bang the drum about
plastic. Backed by the Oceans of Plastic campaign and documentaries he
wants our leapers to teach, explain and steer changing attitudes.
In addition to the above Chris has planned this adventure for us, in response to the demand of gap year students who want to travel responsibly.
