Washington DC Trip


The Boys & Girls Club of the Tri-County Area is excited to offer an exciting opportunity for 8th-12th grade students. Through a Learning Journey grant from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation, Inc. the Club is eligible to send 40 teens (8th-12th grade) and 8 adults to Washington, D.C. this summer on an all-expense-paid, five-day trip. Working with World Strides Educational Travel, Inc. the group will travel by Coach Bus to/from Washington, be assigned a personal tour guide, have overnight security at their hotel, and will have an action-packed experience with tourist stops planned well in advance.

Who: 40 teens (8th-12th grade) plus 6-8 chaperones
What: An all-expense paid five-day trip
Where: Washington, D.C.
When: June 24-28, 2024
