Getting ready to leave Pucon

Alzar School | 04.02.08

Well, the Alzar School is about to leave Pucon, and begin our journey northward. From here, we will tour the historic city of Valdivia, where Claudio (our lead Chilean instructor) is from. Afterwards, we are going to hike around Volcan Descabezado, a giant volcano.

Life here in Pucon has been good fun. We’ve been camping the entire time, and learning lots. We have practiced a bunch of the 10 Elements of Leadership… for those of you who don’t know what they are: Character, Technical Proficiency, Communication Skills, Resiliency & Resourcefulness, Accurate awareness of self, Personal Leadership, Inspiring Vision, Community Membership & Service, and Continual Learning and Improvement. We’ve also practiced Spanish, learned about Leave No Trace camping, and thrown a lot of Frisbee. Everyone is taking turns cooking and doing dishes, and the group is getting along splendidly. We can’t be happier!

We will let the students tell you more… as we know you´d rather hear about it from them…
