If you’re thinking about exploring America after Summer Camp ends, you might be looking for a few reasons to do Trek America.
After Summer Camp’s over, you’ll have 30 days to travel the States before your visa runs out.
Instead of jumping on a plane to come straight home, exploring America offers so many opportunities to explore!
In today’s Blog, USA Summer Camp’s Jess Toogood talks us through her reasons to do Trek America.
On our Trek America, we camped on the bank of the Colorado River, in the Grand Canyon, and at a campsite with natural hot springs.
I’m not an experienced camper, but they were some of the best nights of sleep I’ve ever had! The views were also amazing.
We had some unexpected visitors – a few raccoons and a scorpion… eek! But I’d do it all again in a heartbeat.
Everywhere we stopped, we were given advice on the best places to go, depending on what we wanted to do.
Whether that was hiking, shopping, or eating, our Trek America Leader always knew where we should go. It wasn’t a tourist trip, so it was off the beaten track.
They somehow store all this knowledge and keep it ready to answer any question you might be able to throw at them.
One of the most stressful things about travelling solo is trying to find cheap, but nice places to stay.
When you go on a Trek America, you don’t have to worry about accommodation because they’ll sort it all out for you.
The Trip Leader will have everything organized before you set out. They’re also tried and tested places, so no dodgy nights sleep!
Even if you’re travelling alone, it won’t feel like it because you’ll be with a small group of other people.
The trips are tailored to the people on the trip, so you’ll always get out of it what you want to.
When we got to the Grand Canyon, we were asked if we wanted to do a helicopter ride. A few of the group did, and some didn’t.
While some people took the helicopter trip, the rest of the group explored the campsite. I guess it’s just a really easy holiday!
One of the big reasons to do Trek America is to get the travel itch scratched.
You might spend just one night in a place before moving on, but it’s a great way to see lots of different things.
At the end of the trip, you’ll have a list of places you’ll want to go back and explore a bit more.
