Gap year and Summer travel programs for teens
The ARCC Difference
Designing and Operating Programs Exclusively for Students for 40 Years
As a result, ARCC is looked to as the standard for delivering quality, fulfilling and enriching programs for our participants. What we have learned over the decades is that successfully operating these types of programs, year after year, is not an accident.
Superb Program Design
Unique and Unforgettable Experiences
ARCC is committed to providing unique and life-changing experiences that resonate deep within our students. On our programs, our students venture far off the beaten path, go to places and do things that most people can only dream about. We’ve spent forty years building close relationships with organizations and communities around the world to ensure our students engage in truly intimate, authentic encounters with the people, the cultures and the lands they visit.
Exceptional Trip Leaders
Impeccable Safety Record
ARCC students want to be on our programs and arrive ready to immerse themselves in this extraordinary experience. We screen references from every prospective student and only accept those we believe will be positive and enthusiastic group members.
Small Group Sizes
ARCC groups consist of no more than eighteen students for summer programs and no more than fourteen during Gap semesters and each group is led by two ARCC leaders. This makes them the perfect size for programs of this nature. Our programming is designed so that we make as small an imprint as possible on the areas and communities we visit. By limiting the size of our groups, each student gets a much more personal experience during the program. In addition, our leaders cherish the time they have getting to know each student so well, which helps them better tailor the program to meet individual needs.
