L&E is offering two Teen Travel UK tours this summer and we don’t want you to miss out.  What is TT?  Well, it’s an authentic way to encourage young people to spread their wings while learning the art of travelling.

The L&E Pathway

L&E has 9 years of experience in creating award winning summer camps and TT is the next step for your child.  The L&E Pathway will see your child attend our summer camps with the potential to one day become a Camp Tutor.  Summer camp will help them build their self-confidence while TT will teach them how to travel safely and manage a budget.  From TT they can then apply to be a Camp Tutor which will allow them to complete the pathway and have a paid job for the summer!  We truly believe that by following the L&E Pathway your child will gain skills that will be invaluable as they move into adulthood.

L&E Pathway

Teen Travel

TT offers your child something completely original, an authentic experience that cannot be rivalled.  The teen travellers will have the opportunity to traverse the UK however they see fit and with us guiding them we will ensure they maximise their experience.  I’m sure they wouldn’t forget to visit Buckingham Palace or Edinburgh Castle but just in-case, we are here to nudge them in the right direction.  Every child will gain something different from their TT experience, however each child will come back with a new air of confidence, an appreciation for new cultures and the knowledge that only comes from a true travelling experience.  The ‘who’, ‘where’ and ‘when’ are detailed below.

Travellers not Tourists

“tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travellers don’t know where they are going”

Your child will be presented with a map of the UK and it will be up to them to decide, along with their fellow teen travellers where to go.   Our only stipulation is that they visit the 3 capital cities: London, Edinburgh and Cardiff – this will ensure they properly traverse the UK.

We truly believe that happy children thrive and this experience is most definitely a once in a lifetime adventure which will have them smiling from ear to ear.

“travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”

Happy 2017!
