FR Review:
Adventures Cross Country runs service, language immersion, sport and watersport summer programs and trips for 7th-12th graders. Their shortest trip goes for two weeks while their longest is for 37 days. Trips are run across the US and all over the world and their goal is to give kids an opportunity to take on leadership roles, learn teamwork and have an experience that will bring about personal growth. Co-ed groups of 12-18 students are led by one male and one female leader. Leaders' ages range from 21 to 32 and all leaders have extensive experience in leading, adventure travel, marine biology, community service and language. Adventures Cross Country boasts over a 50% return rate among staff, a testament to the quality of leadership, students and programs. All leaders have a minimum of 80 hours of training in Emergency Wilderness Medicine and most are EMT's with over 120 hours of training. In addition to ARCC leaders, local guides and experts are used for adventure activities such as rafting, surfing, sailing and scuba diving to ensure the highest level of instruction and safety.

Trips are run across the US and all over the world, including: Africa, Alaska, Australia, Fiji, Colorado, Utah, Southern Europe, California, China, Tibet, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, the Galapagos, Egypt, Hawaii, Spain, Morocco and Thailand. Trips include many different experiences, for example, in one multisport trip participants might backpack an entire mountain range, ice climb another range, ice climb a glacier, sea kayak and raft a river. What to expect on an AARC trip: "Having fun is an important goal, but ARCC is not a catered vacation. You'll be involved in all aspects of the group's adventure from cooking and cleaning, to map reading and leading the group." There may be some long days of travel as well as classes in Marine Biology and 'Leave No Trace' outdoor ethics. Participants will also be asked to occasionally wake up at dawn and may not have access to showers on a daily basis. On the other hand, ARCC is not a survival school. Their purpose is to teach you skills in a fun and positive environment.

Representative Client Comments:
"My daughter had a wonderful experience, truly great. She was challenged, exhilarated, and loved the Ecuadorians and fellow students she met." "This trip has given me new friends and new stories, but more importantly I am returning home with a sense of self I've never felt before." "My daughter came back from Africa with a passion...a passion to make a change or impact a life other than her own. As a teen, this worldly awareness has popped a bubble in which she has lived, has made her a much more active, conscious teen and has connected her to her world." "My daughter loved every minute of this trip and I am so impressed with the leadership, experience and myriad of activities you provided."

I work for this company and want to respond
