Outdoor Adventure: Given time for group training, our youth will complete the 160+ km cycling (Most of the route will be little or not at all traveled by bicycle.)

Environmental Awareness: Given the opportunity to observe various ecosystems throughout the Copan department, our youth will use topographical information from climate, resource and physical maps to compare three or more similarities between their immediate environment and that of home.

Historical Perspective: Given five days to observe 5 different municipalities in the north of department our youth will explain the importance that each village/town has had in the development of the culture, history, and socio-political states of Copan.

Community Service: Given five days to observe while pedaling through towns and villages, our youth will form a list of the greatest needs they have observed and brainstorm ideas of how to help in each of these areas. We will also lead a mini-day-camp in a local day care home at El Paraiso, Copán.

Leadership & Teambuilding: Given the time for training and teambuilding before the event, our youth will divide in cooking and cleaning teams, including bike & equipment maintenance, keeping the car clean, packing and unpacking the camp every day. And every night we will discuss different subjects related to gifts and talents to shape some areas of students’ lives to improve their self-esteem and become better leaders of our community.
