Choice Camps Recommendation of Broadreach: British Virgin Islands Adventure Voyage
Since 1993, Broadreach has been a leader in worldwide summer adventure education for teens. While each Broadreach program has its own special blend of activities and learning, all share a common philosophy and characteristics - small group size, personal growth within a team, hands-on education, skill building with a learn-by-doing approach, cultural immersion, leadership opportunities, and at least one community service project. Of course, unique adventures, close friendships, and new experiences are also part of every Broadreach experience.
Broadreach students travel to incredible places off the beaten path that have been carefully scouted and integrated into the Broadreach program. Each trip is designed to make the most of a given destination, and all locations maximize cultural, educational, and skill building opportunities. Broadreach’s extensive experience gives the organization distinct advantages with respect to staff training, course design, risk management, and safety. For students looking for a summer experience where every day is fun and adventurous, Broadreach may be the perfect choice.
Ready to learn how to SCUBA dive and sail while exploring tropical islands? The British Virgin Islands (BVI’s) have captivated the imagination and attention of pirates, poets, and paradise seekers for hundreds of years. Nearly every hidden bay has a white sand beach and fantastic snorkeling. Easy sailing on gentle trade winds and a seemingly endless number of dive sites make these islands one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Prepare to have a blast in the BVI’s!
Scattered around the Sir Francis Drake Channel are over 50 islands, uninhabited National Parks, exclusive resorts, and laid back beach villages that beg to be explored. An abundance of marine life thrives in the clear blue water, making the BVI’s a great place to learn about the ocean! Earn your PADI Open Water Diver certification and swim through underwater canyons, chase fish past walls of coral, and explore pirate wrecks and unlucky ships on the ocean floor. Learn more about the amazing marine life and coral reefs underneath the clear blue waters. Above the water earn International Yacht Training (IYT) sailing certifications while experiencing the freedom of life aboard. The possibilities for adventure are endless!
From sailing captains and PADI SCUBA instructors to teachers, marine biologists, and experiential education professionals, Broadreach leaders all come with solid experience and a genuine desire to work with teenagers. There are two main leaders for every trip, plus additional staff and outfitters who join the group to bring expertise for specific activities or areas of exploration.
