Another Fantastic Teen Treks Summer Has Come and Gone!

Another fantastic Teen Treks summer has come and gone! This summer we bicycled together up and down hills, along scenic seaside bicycle paths, through pastoral valleys, along old rail lines re-purposed as tree lined bicycle paths, and on roads next to pastures of sun bathing cows - all the while reveling in the spontaneity of adventure travel.

Along the way we explored new places,

we made new friends,

we reached new heights,

we turned each other's worlds upside down,

we got tied up in unexpected adventures,

we explored our silly sides while doing laundry,

we found creative uses for fruit,

 and we had some uniquely memorable slumber parties --

needless to say we had many eye popping experiences!

all the while becoming closer with one another.

We also learned about local history, visited art museums, ate ice cream to cool down on those unbearably hot and humid summer days, visited alpaca farms, explored national and state parks, wandered through country antique stores, visited iconic big city landmarks, and relaxed on beautiful beaches from Cape Cod, Lake Champlain and Lake Ontario to the Puget Sound, Oregon coast, and California's Big Sur. From our seasoned Trekkers completing their Across America Trek from Oregon to Coney Island in New York City to our first time trekkers biking from Buffalo to Toronto and on Cape Cod - we all had a truly unforgettable summer. Not all kids can say they've accomplished so much in such a short amount of time, but our Trekkers sure can!

Keep an eye out for our trip schedule for summer 2018 to help you plan out next summer's adventure! See you then!
