We are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in the United States along with the ongoing travel bans internationally. Due to the updated EU travel ban and the unpredictability and volatility of the global pandemic, we are sad to announce we have made the difficult decision to postpone all of our summer programs. Travel For Teens holds itself to a high level of safety and excellence, and we can not proceed with confidence for either at this time.
TFT believes strongly in the transformative power of shared travel experiences and the exponential growth teens gain from exploring the world with their peers. We had hoped to run programs this summer in safe, teen-friendly environments. There is nothing we want more than to provide meaningful experiences for our participants to form new friendships, create lasting memories, and feel inspired by the magic of summer camp.
Unfortunately, the data is proving the risk to health and proper planning is too great. Safety has always been, and will always be our number one priority. Taking into account the health of our travelers, staff, and communities we visit, we will not be able to operate this summer.
We want to thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we navigate this. Your trust in TFT is beyond appreciated. We have made this difficult decision in order to protect our travelers and the quality of the programs. It is heartbreaking to write this final chapter in a story we never wanted to write, but we know we will come back for summer 2021 stronger than ever and we look forward to traveling and making incredible memories with you in the future.
