We believe strongly in the value of shared travel experiences and the exponential growth teens experience during the summer months. We are committed to running the best programs possible in safe, teen-friendly environments this summer.
TFT is, at its heart, a summer camp. Summer camp has the power to transform lives and there is nothing we want more than to provide meaningful experiences for our participants to form new friendships, create lasting memories, and feel inspired. We are cautiously optimistic that this is still possible this year.
We will wait, see and hope that we can still bring the magic of summer camp to all of our families. To allow families to wait and hope with us, we are extending our final payment deadline until May 1st. In addition to this extension, families will have the option to change trips without fees until June 1st, as we continue to try to provide as much flexibility as possible.
We appreciate families’ patience as we continue to monitor the ongoing developments and assess our programs accordingly, as it is still early to be making a final determination on program suspensions or alterations.
We understand families may want to wait before making any further plans for summer. The following information regarding visas, passports, packing lists, etc. is here for when they are ready. Families who are ready to submit waivers and other paperwork are encouraged to do so. Families who prefer to wait until they feel more comfortable with summer plans may wait. We will reach out when specific deadlines are approaching.
We know that many of you are finding these times very difficult and we understand how you are feeling. We want to thank all of you for your continued support, for believing in summer, and for hoping that we can still provide profound experiences for all our participants.

Here is more information about the group flights we will be offering for our summer 2020 adventures.

Airlines have relaxed their flight change policies across the board. This is helpful for families who may want to change the destination for their teen’s trip this summer.
All TFT travelers require a valid passport for international travel. Please make sure that your passport is valid for 6 months beyond the date that your program finishes.
If you are traveling on a trip inside the United States and are a minor, you are not required to travel with a passport, but TFT always recommends carrying some form of photo ID (Student or State ID) if possible.
