We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

"Although this trip had many highlights, one that stood out was the last 3 days we spent sea-kayaking. From paddling up to sea-otters, to listening to chunks of Aialik Glacier fall into the water. This was a memory I will never forget. "
