I chose this program (Outdoor Recreation) because my desire is to just play outside for the rest of my life. I seek places and opportunities that allow me to do this. I also needed an internship to graduate and with a major of outdoor rec and minor of sustainability - Kalu Yala seemed to just scream my name!
What better way to get my remaining credits than to play (and learn) in the jungle for 10 weeks! The place looked beautiful and like it was full of smart people who wanted to be a part of something bigger.
