Thirteen ConVal district students and two chaperones traveled across the Dominican Republic to develop their photography portfolios.

The seven-day trip focused on capturing the diversity of the country, practicing photography skills and giving back to the community by participating in 10 hours of community service.

For six of the students, the trip marked the first time they traveled outside the U.S. and for four of the students the trip was their first time on an airplane.

While in the Dominican, students explored markets, restored mangrove forests, took pictures of the people and culture, rode horses and hiked through the mountains, ventured into caves to practice light painting, swam on hidden beaches, and drank fresh coconut water.
