Great Kids Come In, Bold Kids Come Out

Most teen travel companies think teens need to be changed into something better. That’s not our style. We believe every teen already has a greatness inside of them, just waiting to come alive. All it takes is a little walk on the wild side. Let’s journey somewhere incredible you’ve never been, where you’ll accomplish amazing things with new friends you’ll never forget. This isn’t just an awesome vacation or a next-level camping trip. It’s a place where adventurers are born.

Family-Run Since Day One

Your Bold Earth trip will be far from our first rodeo. Our adventures started in the summer of 1976 when Bold Earth owner and founder Abbott Wallis led 12 teens on an epic eight-week expedition from Florida to California – and everywhere in between. As a city-born New Yorker, who gained his own love for adventure through summer camps, Abbott’s dream was to empower young people with a thirst for the kind of wisdom that can only be reached through the experience of travel. And by remaining a family-run company, Bold Earth Adventure Camps has never lost sight of Abbott’s vision. More than 40 years and 17,000 adventures later, the values that powered that maiden voyage – passion for experiencing new places, small close-knit group dynamics and, most importantly, summer fun – still inspire every Bold Earth trip.
