ARCC Programs was founded in 1983 with the goal of introducing young adults to outdoor challenges in a fun, safe and educational environment. Over the years we have evolved from offering primarily wilderness based programs to a roster of mostly international community service based programs. We have become the world leader of adventure travel programs for teenagers.
ARCC summer programs and Gap Semesters take place in locations all over the world. We offer something for everyone. Our programs are structured to strike the balance between hard work and hard play, while exploring off-the-beaten-path locations around the world. ARCC students return home with a willingness to face new challenges, a greater sense of responsibility and, most importantly, confidence in themselves.
