CCSP Belize

A semester in the culturally rich and environmentally breathtaking country of Belize offers CCSP students a mind-blowing learning experience!  CCSP's tropical campus on the Macal River is home to toucans, iguanas, leaf-cutter ants, and much more.  From snorkeling inches above brilliant coral reefs and studying the verdant tropical rainforest, to undertaking internships specailizing in public health, biological research, agriculture, or whatever your major interest may be, CCSP students consider more fully the nexus of biblical faith, justice, ecology, and sustainable development. INTERNSHIPS are unique to Belize!  LEARN MORE

CCSP New Zealand 

Nestled beneath the mighty Kaikoura mountain range, yet only one mile from the Pacific Ocean, CCSP's New Zealand program offers students an amazing and unique semester experience!  By exploring New Zealand's unique culture, beautiful forests, mountain glaciers and abundant marine life (includling sperm whales, dolphins, and seals), CCSP students gain new and exciting perspectives on the nexus of biblical faith, ecology and justice in leading sustainable lifestyles.

CCSP NZ HAS A BRIGHT FUTURE AFTER THE 2016 EARTHQUAKE!

CCSP New Zealand has a new campus in Kaikoura, and on January 26th, 2017 we will be welcoming eighteen new students to the spring 2017 semester. If you’re wondering whether or not to apply for Fall 2017 don’t hesitate to do so because we’ll be running the same great program you’ve heard about, and we hope you’ll join us. 

Our new home, Dolphin Lodge (see photos below), atop the bluff overlooking the sparkling North Bay, was unscathed in November’s earthquake and will be a fantastic new home for CCSP. The heart of downtown is just a few minutes walk away, as is the beach, library, and new municipal building. Right next door is a big public park perfect for a pick-up game of ultimate Frisbee, or just throwing or kicking a ball around.

We believe it is important to remain in Kaikoura, because it is quite simply, our home. Our decision to stay, when it might be easier in some respects to leave, reflects our commitment to, and love of the people and places that make Kaikoura so special and such a wonderful place to run an educational program focused on creation care. In fact, this new historical chapter of resilience and community care that is now being written in Kaikoura--a story that involves CCSP, its staff, its grads, and its students--adds a new and deeper dimension to what can be learned in CCSP’s New Zealand program.  APPLY NOW FOR FALL 2017

 

Our Classic Video Is Back!

The original CCSP promo video is back by popular demand. It was retired after CCSP New Zealand stopped going to Samoa after we moved the program to the marine wonderland of Kaikoura and started doing our marine course right outside our own front door!! Apart from the Samoa references and images this video captures the heart and soul of CCSP. 

                                

 

NOTE: CCSP NO LONGER TRAVELS TO SAMOA AS DEPICTED IN THIS VIDEO.  NEVERTHELESS IT CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF CCSP.

 

An Instant Classic Belize Video!  

Belize student, Brooke Dorwart, created this video to highlight her fall 2014 semester experience. One short clip each day adds up to be one great video. Thanks Brooke!
