Our 35th summer Providing Outstanding Programs for Teens

See what we’ve been up to on our travels across the world!

35 Unforgettable Summers & More than 31,000 Lives Forever Enriched

Feel the excitement of today’s version of that inaugural trip in our highlights video!

We’ve shown thousands of teens a meaningful, rewarding and truly special summer since 1983. Our first journey took 40 pioneering teens on the road to experience the beauty and adventure of National Parks in the Western USA and Canada along with the excitement of California.

More than three decades later, we’ve grown to offer programs spanning 6 continents and have spent 35 years perfecting travel for teens all while staying close to our original roots.

Eden and Eli greeted us at the airport and their first words were “Thank you!” They could not have had a better experience. They made awesome friends, traveled to beautiful places and did incredible things. It was great to know our kids were traveling safely to other parts of the world. As their parents, we say, “Thank you!” to Westcoast Connection!”

From the moment I arrived, I knew this was going to be an amazing summer! I can honestly say that I have never had a better time in my life and will truly miss all the wonderful people I have met. With no hesitation, I can confidently say that Westcoast Connection is my second family. I will always keep the memories of this summer close to my heart. Thank you so much for the time of my life!”
