Teen Summer Camps Abroad

Adventure, Volunteer, Study & Travel Programs

"Summers are precious times for teens, full of different ways to learn about life, the world, and themselves. Instead of finding a summer job at the neighborhood ice cream store, encourage your teen to explore the world via summer camps, language learning, and finding adventures through studying or working abroad. What will this bring to them? Besides increased global awareness and intercultural skills, they can learn so many things critical to jobs, college, and life: a reduction of ethnocentrism, language and interpersonal skills, country-specific knowledge, international experience, leadership skills, a heightened sense of curiosity, appreciation for diversity, cultural nuances, creativity, and more. These will be helpful for college essays, in job interviews, and, of course, for personal awareness and global understanding." —by Dr. Jessie Voigts
