The trip will be led by, Dr. David Greer, professor of history and Adam Baron, dean of students. It is a special opportunity to travel with a historian to the U.K. In addition, Dean Baron has lived, worked, studied and traveled extensively in the U.K. and is passionate about sharing it with students.
The first week will be spent at Capernwray Hall. This will include day trips to historic market villages, the stunning Lakes District and surrounding countryside (home to Beatrix Potter, the Brontë sisters, William Wordsworth and other famous English writers). The second half will include eight days in London, exploring all it has to offer. It will include time in Oxford and participation in a two-day global Leadership Conference at the Royal Albert Hall.
The RC group will stay during the first week at Capernwray Hall, a National Heritage Manor home, and home to Torchbearers Bible School and Conference Center. During the second week, the group will stay in student accommodations while visiting Oxford and London (near Hyde Park).
All students are welcome. However, there is limited space (only 10-12 students maximum). Pick up an application in the Center for Student Life or Dr. Greer’s Office.
The cost for the trip will be determined by the number of students who attend. Based on ten participants the cost of the program is $2,500. This price includes round-trip flights, room and board, train tickets, travel cards and a London Pass.
