Discover Your Summer City
All activities and excursions are fun and educational, and focused around our six Embassy Life Skills, to make sure our students get the most out of their experience.
Our half-day trips often include a visit to a famous local attraction. The weekends are usually spent on full-day excursions to a nearby city. These are a few of our most popular full-day outings.
