Road Trip to West Central Ohio

As of June 14, 11pm, the trip is FULL.  You can still sign up to be on the waiting list.  I will keep you informed about your waiting list status, and if a spot opens up, you can pay the fee and come along.


Make some new friends, see some new sights, and have a wonderful cross-cultural experience... On the weekend of June 21, 2024, we will be traveling to West Central Ohio (about a 4 hour trip from Purdue).  


The Travel Plan:

We will be departing from Crosswalk Commons, 925 Hilltop Drive, West Lafayette, IN 47906 at 4:30pm on Friday, June 21, and returning by Sunday, evening, June 23 by 6pm. 


We plan to arrive at our destination in Ohio -- the small town of West Liberty -- by 9:30pm. You will have the opportunity to stay with an American host family the two nights we are in Ohio.  


Saturday's Schedule:

After having breakfast with your host family, we will begin to see some of the sights West Central Ohio has to offer.  In the morning we plan to tour a dairy farm operated by one of the members of our hosting church.  We then plan to see the Champaign Aviation Museum in Urbana, Ohio. We will have lunch at a small restaurant near the air museum.  Next we will go to a farm for an hour-long ride on a horse at Marmon Valley Farms.  We’ll finish our tour around this area by visiting a local candy shop -- Marie's Candies -- before going back to your host family’s home for dinner.


Sunday's Schedule:

We will attend church with our host families (a very interesting cross-cultural experience in a no-pressure environment) and have lunch with them before coming back to Purdue.


The Cost:  To cover the expenses of the activities and the travel, the cost for this weekend will be $60/person.  In addition, you will purchase your own lunch on Saturday at the Champaign Aviation Museum.
