Middle School Summer Travel Program
The aim of Warren-Walker's GullsTreks program is to provide our middle school students with the opportunity to practice independence & to experience different cultures through travel here in the United States and abroad. We believe that challenging adolescents to look beyond themselves helps to prepare them for successful futures in an ever-expanding world. Lessons learned through travel with fellow students and teachers are invaluable and authentically implement our character education, foreign language, social studies & science curricula. Our teacher-led tours take place mid to late June and are open current WWS 6th, 7th & 8th graders via application and interview.
WWS in China!
Since 2014, a select group of students have had the opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in China. This 2-week trip includes exploring new cuisines, attending classes at our sister school in Yongkang, living with a Chinese host family, and visiting historical landmarks. Past trips have culminated with biking on West Lake in Hangzhou, marveling at the Terracotta Army in Xi'an, enjoying the ancient water town of Wuzhen, or laughing at the antics of young giant pandas in Chengdu! Offered to WWS 7th & 8th Graders for June 2019.
WWS Pura Vida!
Our newest expedition heads for Costa Rica! Admitted 7th & 8th Graders will find themselves surrounded by the wonders of nature on this 12-day adventure. Opportunities to practice Spanish, sample local foods, visit a sustainable farm, and shop at the markets are all part of this immersive experience. Science classes will come alive observing sea turtles, zip-lining through the rainforest, snorkeling off the reefs, and hiking near a volcano. Offered to WWS 7th & 8th Graders for June 2020. Not offered for the 2018-2019 school year.
WWS into the Wild!
6th Graders and those in 7th who are not quite ready to venture so far from home can apply for a unique experience in the remote Emigrant Wilderness of Northern California. Following in the footsteps of intrepid pioneers, this 7-day trip, in partnership with Aspen Meadow Pack Station, includes horseback riding, camping, hiking, swimming, fishing, and campfire fun. Sometimes, great adventures can be found in our own backyard! Offered to WWS 6th & 7th Graders for June 2019 & 2020.
