Bobcat Break Alternative Spring Break Trips

What is an Alternative Spring Break Trip?

Bobcat Break Spring Break Trip allows students to travel to a community and engage in service and experiential learning. This is a short-term all-inclusive experience that takes place over spring break. We encourage students to spend their winter break as they normally would, but to focus on social issues such as culture, environment, homelessness, hunger, etc. by participating in this trip right before the spring semester begins! A $75 fee includes transportation, lodging, food, t-shirt, and all service experiences for the duration of the trip!

When are we going?

March 15-21, 2020

Where are we going?

Black Bayou Wildlife Refuge
Monroe, Louisiana

Oklahoma City Dreams Center Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

What are we doing?
