      About this trip

      Note** Itinerary Subject to Change**


      Enjoy an excursion to experience a school in Egypt and visit some of the world’s most precious ancient sights. Meet and work with Egyptian teachers while aiding an impoverished local school/learning center that was created for Sudanese displaced children. Visit an Egyptian run and owned American International School. Traverse the Nile River, visit the vibrant Valley of the Kings, explore the grand Giza Pyramids, and savor the beauty of the stunning Sphinx. Sign up to spend your summer in a country dating to the time of the pharaohs, where you will expand your cultural and educational expertise.


      PD CertificatIon Given: 25 hours of Professional Development


      Schools:  Egypt is a part of our Ancient Civilization Program and is a little different in that we do a couple of school visits.  You will visit a variety of schools for a couple of hours learning about their system, and the importance of education in their culture.


      Terrain: Lots of stairs and uneven terrain.


      Our hope is you will have an experience where you should be able to find a nugget or two to bring back to your classroom, and maybe even a classroom connection.

      Australia was my first BBT trip and I could not have asked for a better experience. Jeremy, Paula, and Fairlie were incredible leaders, and were so easy to communicate with throughout the entire trip. There was a great balance of sightseeing/free exploration time in both Sydney and Airlie Beach, and then we couldn't have gotten a better hometown welcome while visiting Bowen. We spent 3 days visiting schools and making connections with so many educators. Truly an unforgettable trip!

      Where do I start? This trip, much like my trip to Kenya last year, was incredible! I will travel with BBT every year! Best experience, hands down. Kenny and Logan did an amazing job pairing Kimberly and Tracy to lead our group! They definitely made the difference. Kenya is already full of beautiful cultural heritage and people and scenery and wildlife, but the leaders added a unique flair. I’m so ready for my next trip!

      This was a bucket list trip for my husband and myself. We saw & learned about so many things in each of the countries we visited. The food was fabulous, everything was well organized, we met great people. We highly recommend this. It definitely won’t be our last trip! Kenny and all the leaders were great. It was such a fun time.
