Hello world travelers! I want to introduce our 2024 international educational tours!
Girls in STEM: Iceland!
Dates: April 13-21, 2024
Amanda and Ally are taking 5-6 lucky high school girls on a grand tour of Iceland. Campervans, the Blue Lagoon, volcanos, snorkeling between continental plates, glaciers, geothermal energy plants, northern lights, and more! This trip is invite-only. If you are seeking an invite, are a previous traveler, are female, and in high school, please reach out to Ally at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. There are two spots left!
Language and Culture: Costa Rica!
Dates: June (9 days TBD)
A Middle School-specific tour led by SMS PE teacher, Matthew Mejstrik. This trip will focus on practicing the Spanish language while zip-lining through a cloud forest, kayaking across Lake Arenal, swimming in hot springs, and more. This trip is open and will have 12-25 spots available. Please get in touch with Matt at email@example.com if you are interested!
History and Culture: The Netherlands, Germany, and Austria
Dates: June (12-13 days TBD)
This will be Teach Wanderlust's third time taking Summit County students on this tour. This truly education experience centers around the history of WWII and the Holocaust. Each year we have created a more specialized itinerary and we truly believe this will be one of the best custom tours we have built. This year, Ally and Amanda have decided it is time to step back and let someone new lead this trip. Introducing our newest Group Leader, Nick Clements (SMS 8th Grade Science teacher). Students will travel to Anne Frank's Secret Annex, cruise the canals of Amsterdam, learn from a WWII themed tour around Berlin, participate in a street art workshop, visit Dachau Concentration Camp, and more. This is a trip that is equally balanced between heavy history and fun cultural activities. Please keep in mind that this trip seeks travelers who have a deep respect for the locations you will be visiting. This trip is officially open and there are 18-25 spots available. If you are interested in traveling on this tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Splendors of the Mediterranean: Italy and Greece
