Rustic Pathways specializes in community service, adventure, photography, sports, and language immersion programs. We have over 130 different choices in 19 different countries with trips that last anywhere between 1-3 weeks in length. Our programs are all designed to interconnect, so you can mix two different types of programs, have a summer as long as you'd like with Rustic Pathways, and design the perfect combination for yourself. Our programs and options are as unique as you!
We have created programs that reach out to a variety of students, with some staying in specifically designed, lush base houses to some programs that will stay with home stay families or in huts in rural villages. The programs themselves also vary quite significantly! If you're interested in community service you can volunteer with animal projects working with elephants, pandas, or turtles, you can teach children on education projects in schools and orphanages, and you can even work on community development and rebuilding efforts. And if it's adventure you're looking for- we've got some of the most high adrenaline activities, to some amazing tours visiting the Wonders of the World, to developing your sports or photography skills around the globe!
