My mom and I used Tips on Trips and Camps to find a trip for myself to Costa Rica, where I did community service and Spanish immersion. The adviser we worked with worked to understand what I was looking for, and helped me pick the perfect trip. My Spanish improved, and I think learning about a country through staying with a family is the best way to learn about how other people live. I used an experience that I had on that trip for my college essay. That summer was life-changing for me.

Tips on Trips & Camps is fantastic! They are approachable, caring, helpful and knowledgable. They have helped me find reputable programs for my daughters that have been worthwhile, impactful and suited to their individual tastes. There are so many choices for summer programs, and they really narrow the field based on your specific interests. In fact, one of the programs that my daughter went on sparked a passion in her so greatly that it was truly life-changing. She is now going to study in college and put to use what she learned that summer. I highly recommend Tips on Trips & Camps.

Testimonials

Barb did an exceptional job of listening to what my needs and my child's needs were for a summer program. She delivered great options and followed up to make sure they were indeed suitable. This is a great service!

I appreciate how you really listen, ask questions, and get a good sense of who a child is. With so many options, it's nearly impossible for parents to find suitable options on their own. Tips on Trips provides an invaluable service!

Jenny was so helpful in guiding me to choosing a community service trip. I was very overwhelmed at all the options and did not know how to find the trip that was the right fit for me. With Jenny's help I found a trip that was perfect for me and had an amazing time.
