Heifer Ranch: Tips for the Trip

“Use regular wood, not bamboo…it blows up!”

– Hunter Jackson, 10th

One of the living quarters in the Global Villages at Heifer Ranch is a broken down bus.

Coming this November, freshman ISA students will be traveling to the Global Villages at Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. For two days, they will live in a simulation of a third world country where they will have to cook their own food, battle the elements, and work together to create a way to live together.

To prepare for this trip, sophomore, junior and senior ISA students and teachers will be providing advice for the freshman over the next four weeks leading up to the trip.
