March 9, 2024
Spring Break Trip! Trip is currently full, but please sign for the waiting list on this page.
When: Saturday, March 9 – Monday, March 11, 2024
Where: Titusville, FL, Cocoa Beach, FL
Cost: $45
Join Global Connections on our annual spring break cultural exchange! We’ll be visiting Kennedy Space Center and the beach. A partnering church church near the Space Center is graciously hosting us for homestays, so we can offer this whole trip for a fantastic $45 for the whole weekend.
Since we are staying in homestays, there are a limited number of spaces. Please only sign up if you are definitely planning to go because it could take a space from someone who really wants to go.
12:30pm: Leave Gainesville
Afternoon/Evening: Spend time with host families
Morning: Go to church with host families
Afternoon: Go to the beach
Morning: Go to Kennedy Space Center
Evening: Return to Gainesville
Things you need to know before signing up: 
  • The money is non-refundable.
  • Most of the families have pets (dogs, cats or both).
  • Some students will be hosted in pairs but not everyone. For some it will just be the individual student as some can only host one student.
  • You should bring extra spending money for souvenirs and meals during the weekend
  • The $45 fee includes admission to the space center

Here are some helpful links for different things we will be doing if you would like to plan ahead.
