ARCC Gap | Northwest: Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington & Hawaii

United States

Overview

Take a road trip to explore the gems of the west from the stunning peaks and plains of the Rockies in Wyoming and Montana, to the diverse rainforests and waters of the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii. Our Northwest Gap Semester program builds upon our 38 year history of running programs right here in the United States.

Hiking through Grand Teton National Park and taking a quick plunge in a turquoise alpine lake, we explore some of the most pristine wilderness of the west. Partnering with local conservationists in Yellowstone National Park, we understand the current threats to native wolf and grizzly bear populations. Getting our hands dirty and learning some of the basics of construction, we help provide an essential home for a family in need. Sleeping under the stars on a sailboat cruising through the San Juan Islands, we learn about marine ecosystems and life on (and under) the water. Trekking through the pristine wilderness of the Big Island of Hawaii, we fall asleep to the sound of waves meeting the sand and soak up the towering peaks and valleys of this unique volcanic landscape. The newfound insights gained from this in-depth look at some of the most famous landmarks of the American West leave our perspectives and appreciation for our own backyard changed forever.
