Yogyakarta (Island of Java)

While in Yogya, we will visit UNESCO world heritage sites, engage in interfaith worship, and experience some of the activities built into our Gap Year program.

Candidasa (Island of Bali)

Travelers will journey to Bali for the second half of their trip where they will take time to rest and reflect while enjoying beautiful landscapes before returning back to the busyness of life.



Each day we will do a little language learning as well as engage in discussions about gap year, young adult development, our connection to Indonesia, and the value of this kind of an organization and ministry within PPC.

The cost of this trip is $3500 per person. This includes airfare, accommodation, local transportation, food, and excursions during the trip. All essentials will be covered from the day of departure to our arrival back at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). We want to make your experience simple and straightforward, so you can focus on learning and experiencing Indonesia through the lens of our students. Upon arrival in Indonesia, we will have the opportunity to exchange or withdraw money. Local ATM’s are an easy and safe way to access money for souvenirs or items you might want to purchase while exploring on your own. It is important to note that everyone will be expected to arrive on time for our morning flight out of PHL.
