Each of our short-term camps are once-in-a-lifetime educational experiences comprised of unique opportunities of experiential learning and many “bucket list” destinations.
We take learning and character development very seriously. Therefore, we have specific objectives for each activity and every segment of time within the program. Everything is done with purpose.
Participants make new friends, learn life skills, develop character, expand their minds, and have the time of their lives.
Short-term camps run during Summer (July-August) and Winter (January-February) and are 7-day, 10-day, or 14-day programs. These programs fill up fast so we recommend booking at least 6 months in advance.
We can design an entirely new camp or tailor one of our existing camps. This allows us to customize destinations, duration, time of year, and educational profile until it is the perfect fit for you group. If you do not see a camp you are looking for, let us know and we’ll put it together for you!
