2018/19 Break Trips

Our extended trips during Winter and Spring Break provide an experience that is unforgettable. A week of getting to know a new group of people, while exploring and learning skills, allows participants to forget about their school work or job and focus on the beautiful outdoor areas and exciting activities offered.

These trips are camping based. You will stay in tents every night and cook your food on camp stoves. Showers may be available at a few sites along the way.
