BBYO Passport: Western USA Adventure

Multiple cities, CA


Hit the road for a three-week teen travel adventure in California and Arizona. See a totally new side of America – from bustling cities to the breathtaking national parks!

Volunteer at a world-renowned shelter for abused dogs; experience the very best of Los Angeles and San Francisco; and come away with a much deeper appreciation for the richness of America. This is not your parents' road trip! Western USA Adventure is more than a tour. It is a well-balanced combination of must-see touring, active outdoor adventures, meaningful Jewish experiences, and a unique opportunity to forge friendships as part of a close-knit group. No need to fly half-way around the world to experience an awesome summer on Western USA Adventure.

The Must-See's and the Hidden Gems

Western USA Adventure covers all of the must see highlights of the American West Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, andMalibu Beach. We also make time for more off-the-beaten path experiences like walking through a redwood forest, exploring Silicon Valley, digging for gold in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and kayaking on Lake Tahoe.

Once-in-a-Lifetime Outdoor Adventures

The American West is about wide open spaces and stunning national park land. Live the great outdoors hiking to the base of Half Dome in Yosemite, rafting down the Salt River in Arizona, descending deep into the Grand Canyon, and swimming in the desert waters of Lake Powell. See a side of nature that you have only dreamed about, and challenge yourself along the way.

Living Jewish Values

As an experience for Jewish teens, Western USA Adventure is also an opportunity to explore your Jewish identity in a new context. Delve into the meaning of being "eco-kosher", fulfill the Jewish value of Tikun Olam (fixing the planet) on a series of meaningful service projects, and celebrate Shabbat in new and different ways with local Jewish communities.
