True Nature Education is partnering with Milford Jr. High in 2022 and heading to Costa Rica!

Experience the rich culture of this incredible country while doing work to support the people, communities, and preservation of the land and natural environment. You will have an unforgettable journey, full of outdoor adventures, connections with local communities, and service outreach work. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet new friends for life, learn about being an international student leader, and explore more about yourself. In a time where our world is becoming more and more of a global community, come be a part of the bridge of support by taking part in this incredible service, adventure and leadership trip.

During the program you will participate in several service opportunities* including potential projects such as: planting trees, working at the local school, renovation/construction of a local building (i.e. school, community, center, church), caring for endangered monkeys, cleaning the beach, and sharing our individual gifts – art, music, dance, and sports — with the local communities. Students will stay at eco-hotels and locally run sustainable hotels. Our programs will take place at two different sites in 2022. Site #1 will be next to Manuel Antonio National Park and Site #2 will be located near the village of Chachagua, close to the Arenal Volcano.

  • 7 Nights accommodation
  • 3 Delicious meals each day

We have hosted thousands of participants and have been honored to share in the life-changing experiences of our guests.

This week was an excellent balance of work and play. I loved that I was able to give back to both the community and the environment. I loved the environmental sustainability aspect and feel that I learned a lot that I can bring back to my own country and habits. I wasn’t expecting so much sightseeing and learning of the country and the people and culture, but I loved this aspect so much. I expected very little and came into the trip very unaware of what was going to be in store, but I felt that that uncertainty made the trip that much more impactful and fulfilling. It was an education, eye-opening, heart-opening, soul-searching, beautiful experience. 
-Chloe Dervie

This trip is amazing at changing your perspective, and expanding your comfort zone. The series will change you in ways you could never imagine. Believe in yourself and you can accomplish many things on this trip.
-Michelle Hannah

This was an experience of body and soul, a reunion with nature and myself. One week doesn’t feel sufficient, and I hate to leave this paradise and the phenomenal, genuine people I have met. This trip is an inspiration for life, and I’ll always carry it with me.
-Natalie Sigismandi

IS THIS PROGRAM FOR ME?Costa Rica Yoga Retreats

Our international programs are opportunities to put into practice the values and mission of True Nature which include service, leadership, adventure, and mindfulness. If you have an interest in the program, have an adventurous spirit, a desire to experience a different culture and a willingness to participate in group activities then you are welcome to join our programs.


We understand that many questions come up when visiting a place you have never been. What do I bring? What is the weather like? We have created Participant Packages that will clarify these type of questions and more. Once you have registered, we will send you these materials. In addition, on our website we have a comprehensive FAQ section, that also gives detailed answers to common questions. If you have other questions, you can always email us at so we can support you.


We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $100, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.

We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.


All MJH Students will be flying on the same flight to Costa Rica with the MJH Chaperones. Once the flight details are determined, a notification will be provided at school and provided on this page.

True Nature Education is closely monitoring the situation regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus and its impact on global travel. For more information click here.
