Upcoming Trips Abroad

Within the next few years, Flint Hill is offering several international trips. The two that have been confirmed to take place are in Iceland (June, 2024) and Japan (Spring, 2025). Along with these trips, there is talk of an exchange program which may take place in France, giving students the opportunity to immerse themselves into the culture and language. 


Any student with an interest in ‘Nature Study, and Photography’ will be excited to know that these are the themes for the Iceland trip. It will take place this summer, running from the 8th to the 18th of June. Mr. Fred Atwood, Upper School Science Teacher, is the coordinator and teaches marine science and leads the bird club at Flint Hill. His passion for these topics makes him very knowledgeable about Iceland’s wildlife, and will allow the students to learn more about it. Throughout the journey, the group will be staying at multiple locations in order to maximize the list of activities and discover the diversity of Iceland. Some of the key activities include: A glacier walk, Puffin watching, Eldfell mountain hiking, visiting Gullfoss waterfall, Pingvellir National Park, and exploring the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. If you are considering joining this trip, the application deadline is the 28th of February, 2024. 


If you have been wanting to explore an eastern culture, learn more about the future of technology, or simply travel, then this is the trip for you. The visit to Japan begins on the 17th of March, 2025, and runs through to the 24th of March, 2025. Ms. Henry teaches robotics and computer science, and is also the coordinator of the visit. This trip is directed at students who take STEM subjects or have an interest in technology; however, anyone is welcome to join. Every day is packed with activities ranging from museums, such as the Miraikan Science Museum where students will learn more about the planet and future, to Japan’s famous natural landmarks, such as Mt. Fuji and its beautiful surroundings. Moreover, students are given the opportunity to discover Japanese culture in a traditional tea ceremony along with being taught about its heritage.
