The Maroons are an intregal part of Jamaican history and culture as they were the catalyst to the Slave rebellions throughout the island which ultimately led to Jamaica becoming one of the second country to free itself from English colonialism. The first being Haiti’s revolt against French rule.
During your 5day 4 night service learning ed-venture, you’ll learn how the fierce warrior Queen-Nanny’s brilliant gorilla tactics defeated the powerful British Army. You'll also sample vine ripened fruits, delicious roadside foods, while sipping on rum and coconut water.
