Thailand’s Best Trip Prep
- Beginning in mid-March, Bold Earth will provide personalized flight recommendations to all enrolled families. We do our best to group students together on flights when possible while balancing cost and speed of travel. All flight recommendations are optional.
- If you’d rather choose your student’s route to the final destination, please contact our office for arrival and departure guidelines. Even if you choose not to use the personalized flight recommendation, we are still happy to put you in touch with other families whose children are on the same trip and flying in and out of the same area. If you would like to purchase your flight prior to March, we ask that you confirm the flight itinerary with our office before booking.
As per airline regulations, we greet every student who flies as an unaccompanied minor at the gate. For all other, non-UM students, please follow your group off the plane down to baggage claim, where one or both of our trip leaders will be waiting. Students will call home as soon as they meet with our group and gather their baggage.
*Please do not book flights until your child has been officially accepted and enrolled on the Thailand’s Best trip.

Preparing for physical activity
Bold Earth is designed as an active camp for teenagers. We recommend regular aerobic exercise for at least a month before departing on your trip. Walking, jogging, swimming, or riding a bike are all great ways to increase your fitness to get the most out of your Bold Earth experience.
