Everyone deserves to have experiences that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Christian travel allows students to make memories that last a lifetime while deepening their faith with their friends and mentors as they prepare for their futures beyond the classroom. 


Yet planning a trip for a large group of teenagers is a challenging task with a long list of details to manage. The right travel partner takes away the pressures of planning the logistics of an educational tour and helps ensure a positive experience for everyone involved — including any teachers, administrators, and parents.


Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved in organizing an educational Christian trip and how the right tour company can make it so much easier for you and your group.

Where Should Student Groups Travel?

There are some important factors to consider when deciding on where to plan student travel, including: 


  • Curriculum (What will they learn?)
  • Students’ ages and grade levels 
  • Time of year 
  • Size of your group
  • Length of your trip
  • Distance from your home location
  • Goals of the trip 


Rather than trying to figure out what works best for your group by yourself, Forge Christian Tour Co. can work with you throughout the entire process, from planning to post-trip evaluations. 


Students travel with Forge Christian Tour Co. to locations such as:


As the birthplace of America and the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia gives students a close-up understanding of the meaning of freedom by visiting the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. 

Washington D.C. 

Middle school students are particularly well-suited to travel to the country’s capital. Being able to see where major world-influencing decisions are made every day can leave a lasting impression on young minds and shape their thinking in the years ahead. While in D.C., groups see a mixture of historical sights and have the chance to tour the Smithsonian and Holocaust museums. 

New York City 

As one of the most visited cities in the world, students experience a variety of cultures and how they come together from a biblical perspective. Many groups choose to go to a Broadway show, Times Square, and the Statue of Liberty during their stay in the Empire State. 

The United Kingdom 

If you want your students to experience world history up close, traveling across the Atlantic with Forge Christian Tour Co. is a great, life-changing option. Students see Buckingham Palace and Saint Paul’s Cathedral, among other historic cross-sections of faith and culture. 

Custom Trips 

Some student groups opt to visit a custom location with help from their travel advisors, including domestic and international options.
