Goodbye hugs from your homestay siblings can be tough- Believe us! In a matter of days, you create a bond hard to replicate. The language might be a barrier at the beginning but in the end, that initial fear that you won't be able to communicate is just an afterthought. Homestays are an incredible way to get to know and better understand a different culture than your own. Better yet, a homestay experience helps you grow and better understand yourself as a person. We have an extensive protocol for choosing our homestay communities, homes, and families that will ensure you make connections that will last a lifetime.

Meeting Gretch and her family in Southern Appalachia is something you don't want to miss. She is the true embodiment of Expedition Mentality. First starting as a guide and then ultimately becoming one of our local visionaries. Living on a farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the place fosters an intimate setting for reflection perfect for middle school students. Farm to table, anyone?

How to Frame adventure activities? That is a great question you as an educator should ask your travel provider. An activity like zip-lining can be just a fun adventure...but as great educators, we look to maximize each experience and our educational outcome. So ziplining is not just flying through the clouds, it’s learning about microclimates, layers of life in the canopy, and how ecotourism can contribute to habitat protection. Everything that we do is Intentional, from how we plan our itineraries to how our guides frame each activity in the field. We know that you are Intentional in your classroom, your travel provider should be as well. #Expeditionmentality #studenttravel

As teachers, we know that there are always a range of cliques inside the classroom -from best friends to students who don’t get along. Our guides are experts at bringing students together as a group while on Expedition. To provide space for a young person to expand their comfort zone and make new friendships is one of the things we are most proud of.

Have you ever had the opportunity to safely see very different animals just a few feet away? You will be blown away by the experience of witnessing the mating of hundreds of red-eye tree frogs right in front of you near a body of water.

You will feel privileged to participate in such a powerfully emotional experience but you and your students need more than just facts, you need guidance on how to connect the dots, our experiential educators provide that and much more!

Direct flights from the US to Reyjavik make it easier for you or your students to be the ones standing on this cliff taking this picture while feeling the breeze and water coming from the waterfall. The easy part is getting there- The hard part is getting the most educational value out of the experience. We provide that. Our excellent team of educational planners, experiential educators and local visionaries will make your trip a once in a lifetime expedition.

Final day! 🙌🙌

#philadelphiaexperience #expeditionmentality #summer2019 #summercamps #studenttravel #reflectiontime

For our final day of Urban Adventures with Chill Expeditions, campers started at The Clay Studio for a workshop hosted by educator and ceramicist, Diane Marimow. They navigated their last journey together at one of Philadelphia’s most iconic sites— the Philadelphia Museum of Art. After their creative Museum experience, they reflected on their week of adventure by mapping out all the locations they visited this week. Thank you for joining the adventure, campers!

The importance of environmental education can't be stated enough, even more, today given the sad news coming from South America. The toll our planet is taking is too high and almost irreversible due to the lack of vision from a few. Education will always be the answer to avoid more catastrophes like the one we are living today.

After a workshop on “Situational Awareness” presented by former Philadelphia Police Officer, Lance Jones, our Urban Adventurers learned to use public transportation, toured City Hall and explored a unique tour of the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, beginning at The Palestra. This adventure with Chill Expeditions introduced campers to the unique and diverse layout of the city!

#WHYPERU #EXPEDITIONMENTALITY #STUDENTTRAVEL

A raucous macaw clay lick in the Amazon; tiptoeing through an immense cathedral in Lima; buying snacks with soles at the colorful local market in Cusco- how does it all fit together? Our expert guides link it all through our unique Story Approach that connects each experience through a central theme as students get hands-on in this ancient culture with such magnificent biodiversity. In the mountains of the Sacred Valley, hike past a Qechua community to visit unknown and unexcavated Inca ruins- just how Machu Picchu looked before excavation. Discover why such sites were important to the Inca and how they are preserved and excavated today.

Expand your comfort zone and your palate with the delicious hand made tortillas of Belize. Learn the traditional Mayan way of making tortillas but be careful! Girls in town pride themselves over their tortilla's being better than their neighbors! They may even go looking for a Cane Toad to hold in order to make their tortillas puff when cooking! That is the Mestizo and Mayan tradition.

When you travel immerse yourself in the culture. Experience hands-on and when you come back you will feel like a different person, but maybe keep the toad holding to the professionals...

"The way we experience the world around us is a direct reflection of the world within us"--Gabriel Bernstein.

A young person needs quiet time and time to reflect, especially when traveling, to understand that what they are living is a life-changing experience. The classic 'highs and lows at the end of the day' doesn't allow a young person to really do that. We want your students to go deep and to make connections to their lives back home, to create curiosity and to become a more harmonious and sustainable human being.

An experienced guide can easily tell you this beautiful orchid names, their distribution, pollinators, etc. But can they engage your students in a way they can understand why Ecuador is known as the land of The Orchids and why they are important not only for the people in Ecuador but for the ecosystem they live in? Are your students asking the important questions? Are they gonna take names and information back home or an integral understanding of what is really going on?

Meet the Quechua women in the Peruvian High Andes and learn how their dresses are rooted in traditions from Pre-conquest Peru. Each village has a unique style of clothing that identifies the wearer as belonging to that region. Indigenous women in the Andes dress in layers of beautifully bright, colorful traditional Andean clothing, including capes, shawls, embroidered skirts, and vibrantly colored hats.

Our experiential educators, like no one in the business, will immerse your students in the culture and will make them maximize the outcomes of amazing opportunities like this by encouraging them to ask questions and to carry back home the meaningful details.

Service learning can have a lasting impact on students. When done right, it can be the highlight of a student’s education in leadership. It leads to a greater understanding of the larger world and a student’s vision of their place in it.
