“We have sent all four of our kids on Westcoast Connection. They all came home with great memories and had amazing experiences, meeting new friends. Dylan had lots of fun. Thank you Westcoast for a great summer X 4 !!”

“This trip gave me the most amazing summer of my life and it was better than I could have ever expected. I made the most amazing friends and saw Europe in a way that I never could have in another environment.”
Mackenzie Matyas, Bethesda, Maryland
“I gained life experiences that I could not have achieved anywhere else and have helped shape who I am. The trip leaders and the trip itself made for the most unforgettable summer of my life.”
Many of our programs are open to students completing 11th and 12th grade mixed with younger high school students. You can see all itineraries for students completing 11th grade, or for those completing 12th grade.
ON TOUR designates specific departures for students exclusively completing 11th and 12th grades. These itineraries combine a higher level of independence appropriate for older teens with the structure parents still expect from a summer program. These itineraries include more personal choice, added nightlife, and later curfews. See our full list of programs offering exclusive ON TOUR departures.
