This island adventure is made just for younger teens who want to explore the Hawaiian islands while enjoying the laid-back beach life while also participating in service work with sea turtles and local school kids. So pack your bags, grab your lei, and say "aloha" to the summer of a lifetime. Find out more!
Join us this summer for some sun, sand, and sea turtles as we explore the Hawaiian Islands on this adventure designed especially for younger teens! From vibrant Honolulu to laid-back Maui, this middle school program covers some of the best highlights of Hawaii, including postcard-perfect beaches, turquoise water, and plenty of adventure!
Learn about sea turtle conservation while participating in several projects to protect the endangered hawksbill sea turtles. Projects include learning about sea turtle conservation efforts, watching over sea turtles as they bask on the island’s beaches, as well as the possibility for nest watches and night patrols.
Our service work will also include a special visit to the Boys and Girls Club in Honolulu. While here, we will run a program for the children involving sports, arts and crafts, and anything else we can dream up! This provides the opportunity to bond with the children while gaining insight into BGCH’s mission of inspiring the local Hawaiian youth.
Plenty of action-packed adventure will complement our service projects. Hike to the top of a volcanic crater, take a surf lesson, ride in a traditional outrigger canoe and more on this incredible journey to discover the best of the Aloha State!
On our Younger Teen trips, you will find smaller group sizes, outstanding staff who connect on the same level with this age group, and itineraries that perfectly inspire a passion for travel and a greater understanding of the world for all who join us!
