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.


After the Nov. 14, 2016 earthquake, CCSP New Zealand acquired a wonderful new campus, the Dolphin Lodge (see photos below). On Jan. 25th, 2017 we welcomed eighteen new students to experience the inaugural semester in our new facility sitting atop the bluff overlooking the sparkling North Bay. Dolphin Lodge turned out to be the fantastic new home for CCSP we anticipated it would. The heart of downtown Kaikoura 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. But what makes a place special is the people, and our dedicated staff moved in and ran the program that CCSP graduates rave about, and new students come expecting to experience. Perhaps it’s best to hear this directly from last semester's students themselves, so be sure to check the link below to last semester’s blogEnjoy!




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. 





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!
