Winter Wisconsin Dells Trip

February 25, 2020

This month, Spirit representatives Cathriona and Katherine took some of our Wisconsin Dells participants to Knuckleheads for a day of pizza and bowling! Some of the participants had never bowled before, but everyone caught on quickly and had the chance to play a few games. You can read more about this fun trip below!

On the first day of our trip, we had a large group of 25 participants who were excited to experience bowling and some indoor fun at Knuckleheads Trampoline Park. They enjoyed pizza, and a few participants even tried out the trampoline park! Cathriona and I enjoyed talking with them about how they were adjusting to the cold Wisconsin weather and the chance to live in dorms. Many of the participants are taking advantage of their location to try skiing or to visit Madison or Milwaukee.

The next afternoon, a group of eleven new participants were able to join us for pizza and bowling! We talked about the chances they had to practice their English at work and what other places they wanted to see before they returned home. This group had some very talented bowlers with lots of experience!
 
That evening, excitement was in the air at the Hiawatha dorms for the Valentine’s Day dance organized by the Wisconsin Dells J-1 Consortium. Cathriona and I helped decorate to set a festive atmosphere, and then we ran the snack table. This gave us the chance to chat with more Spirit participants and other students living and working in the Dells this winter.
 
The trip was a great chance to meet our participants and hear about their experience in the U.S.!
