For the last three years Dragonfly Transitions has led a international service trip to Cambodia. It’s that time again, a Therapist and two of our most experienced mentors will be leading 10 students on an adventure unlike any other.
On July 2nd they will set off. The itinerary includes visiting cultural and historical sites such as the temples of Angkor, the Mekong River, the National Museum of Cambodia, the Killing Fields and a handful of wats (temples), markets and natural settings. They will offer service to an elephant sanctuary and rescue in a remote area of Cambodia and spend a week with a rural community organization teaching english and helping with a variety of community development projects.
For the last 3 months the students and trip leaders have been meeting weekly to discuss different aspects of the trip. Students have done all of their preparations, from vaccines and packing lists to cultural lessons about the people and the area they will be visiting. The culmination of these meetings was a fun team building exercise on the Rogue River. After meeting weekly and going over logistics it was time to get out into wilderness and do some bonding.
What fun was had. They rented kayaks and rafts and floated down the beautiful and scenic Rogue River. It was a chance to experience something together as a group and further prepare for the next 4 weeks.
