2018-2019 International & Domestic Trips
For the 2018-2019 school year, Storm King is pleased to announce four national and international trips being offered to our students – the Florida Everglades, the Galapagos Islands, and two ski trips. While they complement the School’s academic curriculum and community service program, these trips serve to add yet another dimension to Storm King’s already vibrant student life. In past years, Storm King students have broadened their horizons, experienced different cultures, and learned about the natural world through trips to Peru, Fiji, Cuba, the Galapagos Islands, New York City, Boston, the Adirondacks, and many others.
Travel to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands for a hands-on expedition that combines wildlife observation, field-based conservation, and analysis of human footprints and sustainability in these fragile ecosystems. Snorkel with sea lions, hike to Tortuga Bay and walk among pre-historic looking giant Galapagos tortoises. Visit Quito, Ecuador (stand on the equator), San Cristobal, Santa Cruz and Isabela Islands in the Galapagos. This 10-day trip is all-inclusive for a cost of $3,700 and is offered during Spring Break 2019. At least 10-12 students are needed to take this trip with a deadline of November 1, 2018 to commit to this adventure.
