The benefit of teen travel programs is that they provide unique experiences in a safe setting designed especially for youth. The friendships, lessons, languages and experiences learned while travelling to different parts of the world and exploring other cultures is truly a unique opportunity for youth.

Educational teen travel improves academic performance in students

A study performed by The Wagner Group found that young adults who took educational trips between the ages of 12 and 18 had both better grades and higher incomes than those who did not travel. That's not all:

Teen Travel Programs and Activities

  • 86% said travel made them more intellectually curious.
  • 80% said travel made them more interested in school.
  • 52% said travel influenced their career choice.

Remarkable benefits for educational travel by teens and tweens

Max Muszynski was 13 when he attended a 2 week tripping camp.

"When I came back from my first long trip, my parents told me I had really changed. Before I went on the trip, I was a slacker in school; I wouldn't do the work I didn't feel like doing. I wasn't failing but I was doing pretty bad."

After his two week canoe-tripping program, Max changed. 

"During my trip, it was the first time I had actually been challenged and had to apply myself, or at least that's what I thought. Now, I take on challenges with an open mind and never give up!"

Max or his parents could never had imagined the life changing experience one teen travel trip could have on their son. What experiences will you provide your teenager?
