Cultural Journeys

Explore ancient ruins, sample new foods, learn another language – these and many other life-changing experiences await you on one of our Cultural Journeys. You will join a group of students from across the US and travel with an experienced Walking Tree Leader to new and exciting destinations.

Our Cultural Journeys also include a focus on global leadership, meaning you will be challenged to solve real-world problems, lead your peers in expeditions or group reflections, and navigate your way through unfamiliar terrain. Our leaders will push you to develop your personal leadership style and reflect on your role as a global citizen, opening a world of opportunity not only abroad, but at home as well. Take a leap and join one of our Cultural Journeys for the adventure of a lifetime.

We believe that the future leaders and citizens of a globalized world should also have a global and cultural perspective. Our Cultural Journeys are designed to broaden your horizons, introduce you to different lifestyles, and allow you to experience the world with a group of students your age.

Here are just some examples of what you can expect to do on a Cultural Journey:

  • Explore ancient ruins in the Peruvian Andes
  • Climb volcanoes and interact with indigenous communities in Guatemala
  • Compete in a scavenger hunt in China’s Forbidden City
  • Learn to ride waves with Costa Ricans in the Pacific surf
