Each participant is chosen on a case to case basis. We do our best to match up the participants social, emotional and physical needs with the dynamics of the various trips. Factors to consider are accessibility of the trip, medical needs, number of days away from home, behavioral support needed, volunteer support, etc. If a participant isn’t chosen for one trip we will make efforts to match them with a future trip that better suits their needs.

We provide qualified volunteers that are in the same age bracket as participants which increases peer to peer connections. On our trips young adults of all abilities share a travel experience and make lasting friendships.

We accept young adults 18-35 years old.

Is the trip truly free?

Yes, every trip is 100% free of charge for all participants and volunteers. For our multi day trips, we do ask for a $100.00 deposit once a participant has been selected. Rest assured, this deposit will be returned after the trip.

How many trips can I take part in?

We have a high demand for our multi day trips therefore we make an effort to offer placements to individuals who haven’t been on a previous trip. However, many of the day programs allow for higher numbers and provide an opportunity for young adults from past trips to take part and reunite.
