How Do I Pick a Broadreach Program?
If you're not sure, we're here to help!
Every Broadreach program is jam packed with fun, adventure, learning and opportunities for personal growth that provide amazing memories to last a lifetime. Since each one offers its own unique experience, it can be hard to choose which one is your perfect fit so we’ve created a handy dandy guide to help you select your ideal summer adventure.
Step 1: What are your summer goals?
Topic: First, identify what it is you’d like to dive into this summer! Want to get hands-on experience working with animals? Learn the fundamentals of photography? We offer a wide variety of subjects, so think about what you’d like to learn to do this summer!

Focus: Once you know what you’re interested in, think about how you’d like to explore it. Some programs offer college credits and delve into specific subjects, while others explore the topic with less rigorous academic focus. Others are more centered around practical skill-building, such as earning scuba certifications or becoming a tried and true sailor, so decide which type of program best fits what you’d like to achieve this summer.
Length: For a more immersive experience, we offer three week trips that offer the most in-depth exploration of your chosen interest. If you’re short on time or haven’t spent much time away from home, our 12-day programs are the perfect chance to ease into travel and learn something new.
Step 2: Have a personal consultation with one of our program specialists
Call us or schedule a call here to arrange a personal consultation at your convenience. One of our program experts will help you choose the right fit for your date availability and what you want to get out of your summer. Beyond choosing a program, we can also answer any other questions you may have about Broadreach including our approach to safety, our incredible instructors, specific medical concerns, travel logistics or anything else.
Step 3: Do some research
There are several other companies out there that offer teen travel opportunities over the summertime, and we want to make sure that Broadreach is the right fit for you and your goals! If we don’t think we are exactly what you’re looking for, we’ll happily recommend other companies that we think might be. If you’re trying to decide between a Broadreach program and another summer experience, we can walk you through the differences between our approaches so you can find the best fit for your family.
Step 4: Don’t take our word for it
It’s easy for us to tell you why we think we’re the best, but why take our word for it? Search the web and read the reviews of what our students and parents have to say about their experience with us. We are also happy to connect you with alumni family references in your area or that have been on the same program you are thinking about.
Step 5: Lock in your spot before it’s gone!
