Do you want your children to appreciate how fortunate they are?
Are you looking for an interesting and fun way to bond with your family during your luxury vacation?
By giving-back and volunteering for part of your trip you get to spend quality time with your kids as they gain insights into another culture and experience personal growth.
These luxury give-back trips are so popular with families because:
- Children appreciate how fortunate they are (some have even foregone their Christmas presents so that children they interact with can have gifts);
- Families bond closer together;
- Families get to interact with and gain insights into another culture
- Volunteering can increase the chances of college entry
For children aged 12 or under, we have found that wildlife conservation works best as your children get to learn an enormous amount about animals whilst looking after and caring for them.
Our most popular destinations for young children are:
- Costa Rica (care for monkeys, sloths, parrots and more at a wildlife rescue center)
- Thailand (elephant conservation: prepare their meals, feed them, and even help bathe them)
- Australia (assist with surveys of kangaroos, wallabies, koalas)
For children aged over 12, wildlife conservation still works well, but if you want to bond even closer as a family, consider a building project.
Our most popular destinations for teenagers are:
- Cambodia (build a house for a needy family)
