This six-week mini semester program offers you an enriching and inspiring experience in Bali.
During the six weeks you will get to experience volunteering in an animal welfare centre, dolphin spotting in the wild, disaster management and permaculture projects and of course a surf camp that is 5 days! The surf camp will take you from wobbling your way to shore, to riding through barrels like a pro. This gap year program also provides a water way cleaning project. This project could see you kayak down rivers in a kayak made of plastic bottles while helping clear the waterways followed by days relaxing at a yoga retreat.
In between the conservation projects, surfing and yoga your days will be spent taking in the cafe culture of Bali, white water rafting, a volcano sunrise trek, snorkeling and some free time to explore!
A Nusa Penida day trip will be one of the highlights of the Program. Nusa Penida is the largest of the three Nusa Islands that are off of the southeast coast of Bali. It draws in visitors with its breathtaking blue waters that are so many different shades you’ll lose count, its incredible underwater life from manta rays to loads of colorful fish and its out of this world viewpoints. On Nusa Penida you’ll find secluded beaches and be able to gaze over the edge of cliffs, climb to waterfalls and explore the roads through the jungle. Palm trees and lush greenery line the roads and waves crash against the islands edges, leaving you in awe and with plenty of things to do in Nusa Penida.
