More Than Just a Teen Tour

More Than Just a Teen Tour

Zeal Adventure and Travel is often defined as a teen tour, which is true, however Zeal is much more than that too! We travel in small groups; focusing on personal development, friendship, service, outdoor pursuits, cultural immersion, and fun. Unlike your average teen tour, our trips vary greatly in their options for accommodations, food, and activities.

Depending on the day on your Zeal adventure, your teen may be sleeping at a hotel in a big city, small family-owned lodge near the edge of a national park, or inside a tent on a pristine beach of Hawaii. Each day on a Zeal tour is the opportunity to learn something new and get outside your comfort zone.

Food is another way that Zeal Adventure and Travel is unique. Not only do we eat out at restaurants and local favorites, but we also cook our own meals as a group. This makes for a wonderful time getting to know each other in a traditional way around the dinner table. It also means your teen is coming home having learned to prepare food in a safe, healthy, and delicious way.

Activities are another unique aspect of our tours. Because our groups are small (maximum 14 participants), we’re able to participate in unique activities that wouldn’t be possible in larger groups. We’re able to get face to face with critically endangered animals like Hawaiian monk seals, learn to SCUBA dive in the pristine waters of North Shore, Oahu, learn to ice climb on glaciers, and much more.

Zeal is a unique blend of teen tour and experiential education. Whether your teen is looking for a summer full of travel and culture or adventure and challenge, Zeal can provide it!
