HOW TO APPLY

“Connor could not say enough about the trip-his group, the leaders, the culture, the activities.  It was all he hoped for and more!”

– Parent of Connor W. Salt Lake City, UT

ARCC offers 33 summer programs on five continents. All of our programs are designed for students who are engaged, motivated and excited for new experiences. Whether it’s working side by side with local community members on a construction project, learning how to SCUBA dive, or helping to protect endangered sea turtles, ARCC students are often faced with exciting new challenges and opportunities for growth during these summer programs. All ARCC programs are designed to be fun, educational and meaningful.

While ARCC Summer programs accommodate students completing 7th to 12th grades–not all programs are available for all ages.  Some programs are open only to high school students finishing 9th to 12th grades.  When we do have programs with a broader mix of ages, we try to place students in groups only with comparably aged peers. Each age group has a unique itinerary and, other than the first and last days of a trip, younger and older groups rarely see one another.

ARCC is currently accepting applications for Summer 2022. Programs fill up quickly! We encourage you to begin this process as early as possible.

Step 1

Submit an Online Application (Enroll)

Once you have determined that ARCC is the right program for your student, you will need to fill out the Online Application. You can access the ARCC Online Application by clicking here or the red “Enroll Now” button to the left or on the top menu of the page. In the Online Application you will be able to list your trip preferences, let us know if you will be traveling with a friend, etc.

Step 2

We will Contact You to Confirm Availability

Once we receive your Online Application, a Regional Director will contact your family to confirm that there are still openings on your first choice of programs and to answer any additional questions you might have.

Step 3

Secure your space with an $800 Deposit

In order to confirm and secure a place on the program, you will need to submit payment information for an $800 deposit. This deposit will guarantee your space on the program, subject to submission of your final payment and approval of your paperwork and forms. The easiest and fastest way to submit the deposit is with a credit card. You may also pay with a debit card, e-check, or physical check. If you opt to pay the deposit with a physical check, your student’s spot is not secured until ARCC has received the check in the mail.

Step 4

Submit Final Payment and Forms

Final payment is due upon receipt of your invoice. Please note that students may only participate in an ARCC program after final payment is received and all trip forms are submitted and approved.
