Sea Camp Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a tropical paradise unmatched by any other Central American country. Costa Rica’s topography and latitude allows it to maintain steady temperatures year round with abundant rainfall. It boasts the most diverse selection of plants and animals in the hemisphere, and therefore without a doubt is the world’s ecotourism capital. Join us as we travel to Texas A&M’s Soltis Center for Research and Education. We will explore the rainforest ecosystem of the Arenal volcano in Northern Costa Rica. We will hike through rainforest, experience majestic volcanoes, bathe in hot springs, study amphibians and reptiles, and take a safari down a tropical river. "This camp involves moderate hiking and hiking on an incline."

The Soltis Center for Research and Education:

The Center in Costa Rica was established in January 2009 as a result of a generous donation of former A&M student Mr. Bill Soltis. The Center offers a unique setting for the development of research activities, service projects, and study abroad courses. The modern facilities of the Center include dorms, a cafeteria, and multiple use area, labs, classrooms, internet area, and a videoconference room.
