This year's trip is the first of many towards the development of the Boise State University - Corozal Belize Peace Village. Our goal is creating long term relationships with schools, health care providers, and other community partners which enrich the lives of all participants.
Our last day in Corozal included a community fair. Students and parents from Libertad Methodist, and Chan Chen Government and community members were invited to the Corozal village square for games and exhibits representing the activities conducted during the 3 days of Easter Camp.
Arlene, Haily, and Alex were the student team organizing and coordinating the community fair activities.
