Registration for 2019 - Open!

Is your teen ready for a new adventure? Could they use a little more independence? Do you want them to learn how to travel and explore our amazing world? Do you dream of having a teen who goes off to college confident to explore new places and connect with new people? We have the solution and they're going to love it! 

The Basics

Age requirement:  Participants must be current high school students in grades 9-12 during the 2018-2019 school year.

Group size:  We cap our trips at 10 teens each.

Adult supervision:  Each trip is led by two adult leaders (one male, one female.)  All trip staff have years of experience running trips or working at camp and are highly qualified and certified. 

Accommodation:  We stay in private, single-gender dorm rooms within youth hostels during the Adventure Trips.

Meals:  For the most part, we will be cooking our own meals.  The trip participants will all be asked to help cook at least one meal and to do the dishes several times throughout the trip.  Don't worry, a trip leader will be present at all times to walk them through anything they may not know :)

Electronics:  We do not allow laptop computers or tablets on our trips.  We will collect all cell phones at the start of each trip and hand them out to trip participants once in the middle of the trip for roughly one hour.  One of our goals on these trips is to encourage participants to connect with one another, which can be tough if they're all glued to their cell phones!

Teen leadership:  Teens who participate in one of our 2019 summer trips can be a summer camp Counselor in Training for FREE!  Click here for more information on how to apply.

More questions:  Contact Erin Moses at (805) 924-4019..

A true adventure to a tropical paradise!  This trip leaves California to explore two Hawaiian islands.  Starting on the Big Island, your teen will visit the famous Captain Cook's Cove, snorkel with sea turtles, experience Polynesian culture, and visit Volcano National Park.  Then, an island hop over to Kauai leads to a tubing adventure through dense tropical jungle, a hike to the breathtaking Na’ Pali coastline, and a visit to Waimea Canyon, the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific."  This is the way Hawaii should be experienced: going to the places that the tourists never find with great new friends!
