Fox Maple will be returning to Costa Rica in November 2024, to conduct its first CR workshop since COVID. This will be a Community Building Initiative Workshop, where we will be teaming up with the Bomberos de Nosara, to build their main tower and lifeguard headquarters. The Bomberos are a locally organized group of dedicated volunteer firefighters and lifeguards.

Working alongside the lifeguards who will man the stations, students will cut and erect a pentagonal tower with an eclectic, flying hyperbolic curve roof system. From the ground, the roof design bears a striking resemblance to a bird flying. From a birds'-eye-view, the roof plan looks remarkably like a Green Sea Turtle, who have nested on this beach for millennia.

The teak Timber Frame will be worthy of the headquarters and principal lifeguard tower on the main beach entrance to Playa Guiones. This workshop has all the makings of a life-changing—and potentially, life-saving—community building experience.

Camping on site is included. A limited number of space will be available on a first-come basis in the Ecosita bungalows on the property. The bungalows will be shared with other students and total beds are limited, so make sure you sign up and reserve yours before they are all spoken for. The cost for bungalow accommodations is based $50 per night to be paid upon arrival.

The workshop tuition Includes all meals and free tent camping at villas Ecositas Nosara. Bathing facilities are available for all campers.
