This program combined everything that i've wanted and more into one. The program is so well thought out and organized so it helped us all to feel very comfortable. The staff is always there to help you if needed, and the adventures that we were able to embark on were so unique. Hugo puts his heart into every single day, and it truly makes a difference. This is the type of program where everyone really does become family.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
