Bold Earth represents a key step in the all-important journey from adolescence to adulthood. Since 1976, we have offered teens the opportunity to overcome challenges, achieve personal growth, and experience enormous success. Our small groups and carefully crafted itineraries are all designed to ensure every camper comes home saying, “I was awesome!”
What is the Bold Earth formula for success? Inspiring role models, appropriate challenges, encouraging guidance, and small groups of high-achieving peers; that is how the Bold Earth team provides an amazing summer environment. At the end of every summer, we hear the same review from parents: My child returned more mature, confident, and aware of the world and their place within it. We proudly believe that adventure, success, service, and fun are the most powerful gifts you can give your teen!
Unforgettable adventures. New friends from around the world. Trip Leaders unlike anyone you’ve ever met. Locations that will blow your Instagram feed out of the water – and make all your friends back home jealous. It all adds up to more fun than you can handle, or, as we like to call it, a Bold Earth summer!
Whether you’ve already traveled to all seven continents or are simply looking for your first extended summer adventure, Bold Earth has a trip designed specifically for you. Every summer, we take groups of strangers from every corner of the globe and turn them into best friends for life. Beyond all the surfing, service, Spanish, and s’mores, our goal is simple: Bold Earth will be the best summer you will ever have!
