At ARCC, we understand that you may have concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it might affect your enrollment on one of ARCC’s upcoming summer programs. As it has been for the past 37 summers, the safety of our students and families is the number one priority for us. Every day new information becomes available, and we are doing our very best to react accordingly in these unusual times.
As COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen around the world and people become more comfortable with travel, families have been reaching out to ask about joining ARCC summer programs. This interest has been reinforced by the many enrolled families who remain committed to traveling with us this summer.
Of course travel in the U.S. and around the world has changed dramatically since February. In order to responsibly offer programming, we must completely reconsider where and how we operate our programs, balancing safety, logistics and costs.
As a result, this summer ARCC is offering programs to 7 destinations departing after July 13th that we believe deliver the following:
– Safe and meaningful travel for our students and staff
– State/Country restrictions that do not impact the travel experience
– Limited exposure to local populations that might be compromised by our presence
– Reasonably priced flight options for student travel
The four domestic and three international late summer programs we are offering are:
California: Wilderness Service and Adventure
Hawaii: Preserving Paradise
National Parks: America’s Treasures
Pacific Northwest: Wild Adventure
Costa Rica: Cloud Forest Community Initiative
Costa Rica: Jaguar Conservation Project
Belize: Caribbean Reef Conservation
