St. Paul’s Educational Ventures has partnered with the Heart of America Council Explorer Scouts www.hoac-bsa.org to lead several educational trips to Europe guided by Dr. James Leek. In 2013, Dr. Leek led the “Anglo-Italian 2013 Tour” to England and Italy. It was his fifth sponsored trip. These trips were designed to foster appreciation of the roots of our culture through exposure to historical, geographical, artistic, linguistic, and gastronomic experiences. A few pictures are provided below.
