Join us for an unforgettable excursion on our service and medical venture on the coastline of Colombia.
WHERE: Cartagena, Colombia
WHAT: We will run daily medical clinics. In addition, part of our group will do some activities with the local children.
WHO: Three Groups: 1. Medically trained people to help see patients, 2. College & high school students with energy to help keep patients entertained while they wait to be seen and 3. Anyone else willing to work as a team to serve the local community.
WHEN: July 29 – August 6, 2023
(COST INCLUDES: flights to/from IAD/DCA and Cartagena, Colombia along with transportation, hotel lodging, meals, and supplies during the service volunteer trip – cost is entirely tax-deductible. Hotel cost budgeted based on double occupancy, extra fees apply to those who desire to have their own room.)
(COST DOES NOT INCLUDE: Food on the final day in Cartagena and in transit. In addition, it does not include Covid-19 testing in the USA or in Colombia. Each participant is required to meet trip requirements in the time frame outlined by Colombia and the US government. In addition, the cost does NOT include a health/travel insurance plan. If you desire health or travel insurance, which is HIGHLY recommended, please visit IM GLOBAL.
Note: With the constant changing rules and restrictions related to Covid-19, Endurance Leadership has chosen for each participant to be responsible in getting the necessary Covid-19 testing prior to and during travel. The rules may change at any time related to the vaccine or testing so we will keep each participant up to date on requirements and allow individuals and families to acquire what is necessary for travel. For example, the rules have already recently changed with regard to travel to/from Colombia. As of today, a U.S. traveler is required to have a polio molecular test, with a negative result available within 72 hours of arriving in Colombia. The USA requires another test before returning state-side, unless the traveler can produce a document proving that the individual has had and survived Covid-19. The current cost of the Covid-19 test in Colombia is $40 and again, this cost is not provided by Endurance Leadership.
TRIP ADD-ONS: We have had trip participants in the past add on in-country excursions at their own expense. Since there are many variables and choices, please let our staff know your desired return date of travel, so we can make that change before we purchase the group tickets.
