International/Travel After School Programs


International travel programs offer teens a unique opportunity to travel and learn during summer. Camps that categorize themselves as travel camps offer a striking variety of options. These can range from sailing a tall ship, to visiting a variety of European destinations, to canoe-tripping through the wilds of northern Canada. There's no better way imaginable to open up the world for young minds – both literally and metaphorically. Travel camp is an experience that will form minds for the duration of a lifetime. Read more

    Here's a quick overview of benefits, as exemplified by some types of travel programs:

    • Encountering other languages and cultures. A number of programs offer an immersive experience in other cultures, where you live in cities abroad, perhaps participating in a home stay or otherwise interacting daily with local people and families.
    • Fostering teamwork and new skills development. A number of camps are actually voyages on a ship, where you might learn some sailing skills while also seeing Canada and other international ports. These camps encourage kids to work together and learn all about traveling on the water.
    • Increased focus outward. Teens who are looking for exciting personal growth opportunities can volunteer abroad. Several international travel camps focus on community service in areas where help is needed. Kids learn leadership skills and many other lessons. 

    The short term benefits of international travel for teens or tweens are demonstrated anecdotally by anyone who has ever done this ("I learned so much"). The longer term benefits have been explored in a study by the Wagner Group. They surveyed adults who had participated in educational travel during their teen years and found interesting trends, including higher grades in university, and higher income as adults.

    There were more personal effects of teen travel programs also:  

    • 86% of those surveyed felt that travel had made them more intellectually curious.
    • 80% of travel programs alumni said that travel in their youth had made them more interested in school.
    • A staggering 52% said that travel in their youth had helped form their eventual career choice.
