June 2016 Cultural Activity: Idaho Theme Park

July 28, 2016

Cultural Exchange is the cornerstone of our J-1 program. We plan for at least 2 cultural activities a month, which means we have thousands of participants across the United States experiencing local culture. Cultural activities increase in the participant’s emotional ties to the community they’re living and working in, strengthens the relationships with their colleagues, and introduces Americans to invaluable experiences from the participant’s home culture. 

An employer in Idaho brought participants to Silverwood Theme Park in Athol, Idaho. The participants from Turkey and China loved the amusement park and enjoyed going on the roller coasters. They also went to the water park and said it was a "very amazing" experience.
