course details

COURSES FILL UP QUICKLY, SO REGISTER EARLY!

Tampa Bay is a large natural harbor and estuary connected to the Gulf of Mexico on the west central coast of Florida, boasting warm, tropical climates all year long. This makes Tampa the perfect location for APW's environmental science classes, Explore our Environment and Explore our Aquatic Environment, as well as our Make a Difference/ Discover Tampa combination weekend. Come see why students have been enjoying Au Pair Weekend's Tampa classes since 2014, where you will learn about yourself and Tampa's diverse community, starting with Ybor City! While you are here, you might just see an alligator or a manatee! If you time your visit right, you'll even get to experience Florida's State Fair. A year abroad in the USA is never complete without a trip to Florida!
