Community Service Trip: Chico, California

The Belmont Hill community service trip has a long tradition of exposing boys to different parts of our country, interacting with locals, and contributing to the strengthening of communities through service.  This trip offers students the chance to travel to northern California and witness first-hand the devastation wrought by California’s fires. Working alongside fire survivors and Americorp volunteers, boys will hear stories of tragedy, resilience, and hope.  They will work hard, but have ample opportunities to enjoy California’s natural beauty, while deepening their relationships with each other. Workgroups mix boys across forms, providing opportunities for leadership and learning that pay dividends back on campus. 
Always character, always together!
