Wilderness Ventures, the longest running and most experienced adventure travel program offering teen summer camps, is celebrating World Responsible Tourism Day on November 6th, 2013. World Responsible Tourism Day is endorsed by the World Travel and Tourism Council and the World Tourism Organization and celebrates tourism and travel entities that minimize the negative social, economic, and environmental impacts on local communities and make positive contributions to those communities.
Wilderness Ventures offers teen travel programs that give young people the opportunity to learn about the importance of responsible travel through community outreach, environmental preservation, and hands-on education. Their innovative teen adventure tours combine outdoor adventure, environmental education, cultural immersion, and volunteer programs into once in a lifetime trips for teens.
From their status as a veteran company that had a zero-impact camping policy that began in the early 1970s to their current conservation programs, Wilderness Ventures teaches teens about:
- The value of community service
- The importance of wildlife conservation
- Preservation of national parks, national lands, and wild spaces
- The importance of minimizing their carbon footprint when traveling
- Preserving the world’s heritage and native cultures
- The importance of recycling and minimizing fuel usage
- Practical applications of responsible tourism practices
Through Wilderness Ventures small group wilderness programs, young people are empowered to make better decisions and learn about how their actions directly affect the planet and its inhabitants. During these trips, teens are exposed to an all-encompassing approach to cultural and environmental conservation and learn about the issues involved in responsible tourism. They also learn how to become responsible, tolerant leaders that can lead their peers by example.
