Teenager looking to travel during your summer break? We have lots of options!

1. High School Study Abroad

For those looking to study abroad in a traditional school and host family setting, but cannot take a semester or academic year. We have 3 country options to study abroad in a local school for just the summer, in Argentina, Costa Rica, or New Zealand.

2. Teen Summer Language Camps

Want to kick your language studies into high gear? Spend 1-6 weeks over the summer at a language center abroad. During the day you’ll attend a language program at a language school and participate in different excursions. Teens on this program will stay with a host family or live in a dormitory near the language center.

3. Volunteer Abroad

Spend a few weeks in the summer giving back. Our volunteer programs are environmentally focused. From working with an animal rescue center in Costa Rica to forestry projects in Puerto Rico – spend your summer doing something meaningful!

Why study abroad in the summer?

For students with commitments during the academic year, Greenheart Travel offers short-term (one or two-month programs) in ArgentinaCosta Rica, and New Zealand for students who want to experience life as an exchange student abroad during their summer break! You’ll live with a host family and attend a local high school to learn language skills, gain intercultural skills and make lifelong friends – and impress college admissions counselors.
