Excursions

Take a break from your projects and explore LA while participating in of some of our favorite excursions! Students will have the opportunity to visit some of the local tourist attractions.

Santa Monica Pier– A favorite for Hollywood movie scenes, this California icon comes alive at night. Take a ride on the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel or stop by the famed aquarium to get nose-to-nose with the ocean’s most fearsome predators!

Third Street Promenade– The world-famous strip features designer boutiques and award-winning restaurants, all in the heart of Santa Monica. The outdoor mall is full of colorful street entertainers and dancers enjoying perfect California weather.

The Grove– For shopping, dining and simply living life, you can’t do better than the Grove. Make sure to sample some of the freshest fruits and veggies next door at the original Farmers’ Market, an LA landmark.

Venice Beach– Stroll the shops and eateries on Venice Beach’s beautiful Boardwalk. It features plenty of far-out attractions and some of the best people-watching on the planet.

“I had a fantastic summer! It was undoubtedly the best summer of my life. The instructors, the project, the mission- everything was so engaging and informative. I met over 50 friends who I feel are as close to me as my friends from home, and I wish every kid could go through the same experience I endeavored.”
