Transit Camps Summer 2019

Lead by Mr. Guest, our Summer transit camps lead kids ages 12 and up on an exploration of Los Angeles via public transportation.

A bonus session has been added for late July!



Camp Sessions

Freedom &Independence Phase II July 21st -24th 

So, the youth are happy getting around town without needing a parent taxi, but not quite ready yet to head off to college or backpack around Europe? We have a solution! Transit Camps for teens that go further afield and include an overnight element. We have been talking about this for a while, but now we have a concrete proposal:

July 21st -24th travel by the (rather lovely – runs once each day heading north to Seattle!) Coast Starlight train and spend three nights in the International Hostel, San Louis Obispo. What do we do while we’re there? That’s up to the students, but it’s a lovely town in a gorgeous landscape with the Ocean nearby . . . and I’m not doing the cooking!

This will be a much more “authentic” experience if the students have to manage on a limited budget. There’s “sourdough pancakes and coffee” gratis at the hostel each morning, but beyond that all shopping and cooking or eating out is up to the students … and if you want to hire a bicycle, you can save money by eating bread and cheese (in France this becomes a very good option!!).
Ages 13+
$300 per person. Includes train, lodging and $30 per day food budget
