The Bridges Thailand program is a joint program of Workshops With Purpose and Camp Fire Central Oregon. It involves pre-trip educational meetings to prepare you to creatively express what you experience in Thailand via photography, video, or creative writing.
We will travel as a group to Thailand on November 10th-22nd, 2018. We'll learn from local organizations that work to prevent human trafficking, we'll interact with and experience Thai culture and people, and we'll have a ton of fun in the process!
The all-inclusive program price is $4950. This includes pre-trip educational programming, airfare to/from and within Thailand, all ground transportation, lodging, guides, activities, entry fees, a charitable donation to the service organizations in Thailand, meals, and 3 full-time program leaders.
Currently, we have only 4 spots available!
We have found that instilling a sense of wonder and appreciation for other cultures through international travel is one of the most powerful ways to change our world for the better. We become wiser, and profoundly expand the limits of our thinking when we step out of our cultural comfort zone and connect with people who, at first, seem different.
In BRIDGES, teens and adults alike will share new experiences, build awareness, create, and bond together through guided international travel adventures. They’ll learn to use photography, videography, and creative writing to share their stories and become agents of change.
Through travel together, as equal partners, team members experience the powerful transformation that stepping into the shoes of a different culture can inspire. We also learn first hand about the tough issues that affect people in other parts of the world. Not only do we learn about these issues, but we learn to use our unique vision, and skills, to affect positive change.
Our guiding mentors are professional photographers, videographers, and storytellers. They’ve led expeditions throughout the world and are ready to engage a new generation of leaders.
Our primary goal is simple: To inspire tolerance, compassion, and personal growth through cross-cultural experience and immersion. To hone participants’ creative skills for sharing their experiences, and broaden their ability to express what they discover about themselves and the world we live in.
We look forward to hearing about you!
