Who We Are
The Wild Traveler specializes in summer teen tours to threatened and rapidly changing places. Participants explore and learn about these places through a variety of outdoor activities. Our summer teen tours give our participants a hands on way to learn about the areas natural history, human history, and culture. We strive to create a physically and emotionally safe, fun, and exciting experience while our participants gain a stronger sense of responsibility, independence and several other valuable skills that will help them through high school, college, and beyond. Throughout our teen tours, our leaders will facilitate small group initiatives and a variety of fun games and friendly competitions. As our summer teen tours progress, our participants transform into leaders and form solid lifelong friendships.

We have awesome experienced leaders on every one of our teenage summer programs. Our trip leaders have a minimum of 3 years worth of trip leading experience AND they are familiar with the places we lead – surprisingly you won’t find that with larger companies.

Our Hawaii teen tours partnered up with Jacks Diving Locker for our SCUBA certification course in Hawaii – They are one of the best SCUBA facilities in the states and have the awards to prove it. On Kauai we work with Kayak Kauai. Their surf pros instruct our surf lessons and lead our kayak paddle in gentle Hanalei Bay.

Ground transportation, inter-island flights, 3 first aid/ CPR certified leaders, food, instruction, equipment, all activities, SCUBA certification course, group gear, etc! It’s all included!
