Great Educational Group Travel Destinations for the Summer

by Admin 20. June 2013

Summer is here, which for children means a welcome break from school. For professional educators, it means a chance to focus on furthering your own education, or just an opportunity to immerse yourselves in the rich tapestry of incredible museum offerings available.

When it comes to group travel, we envision groups of elite educators, and their friends and families, availing themselves of some of the great opportunities for further education with charter flights to destinations that allow you to focus on some of this country’s amazing, educational museum exhibits.

New York is always a prime destination for incredible cultural experiences. Of particular note are the following exhibits:

  • The Brooklyn Museum has an exhibit entitled "Workt by Hand": Hidden Labor and Historical Quilt, which showcases American and European quilts of exceptional quality and discusses “anonymity, authorship and collectivity,” which nicely dovetails with the group theme.
  • MOMA has an exhibit, Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store, that will help your group connect with New York City, as Oldenburg uses everyday objects to “create an immersive panorama of a gritty and bustling city.”
  • Another intriguing MOMA exhibit is Hand Signals: Digits, Fists, and Talons, which traces the amazing variety of uses to which hands are put in twentieth-century graphic art. This exhibit might jump-start teachers’ brains with inventive ideas for the use of their own hands, and those of their students, in creating new classroom graphic arts.

On the other side of the country, there are some great exhibits in San Francisco:

Help Your Team Escape the Summer Weather

by Karen 18. June 2013

Whether its heat, tornadoes, or drought, summer is indeed here, and the weather can be brutal. Tornado worries can distract staff, while heat and humidity can make your employees lethargic, thus slowing productivity. It’s time for a change, and Miami Air International can get you there in comfort and style.

One good way to rejuvenate your staff is with a team adventure. According to a whitepaper published by Destination Meetings, meeting planners are recognizing that companies increasingly desire activity and adventure in their team building activities. This is in part due to an interest in the local attractions available in the locations where those teams are sent for their business “retreats” or workshop meetings.

So use Charter Airlines to take your team someplace cool and invigorating this summer. Here are a few suggestions:

  • The Rocky Mountains are full of luxurious hotels with modern business and convention amenities. You can choose a ranch option, complete with horse riding and cattle herding, or a spa setting to pamper your employees after an active day of assisting with local trail building activities. The cool mountain breezes will stimulate your team’s appetite for new ideas as well as the healthy mountain cuisine.
  • Alaska is at its most breathtaking in summer, as the valleys are covered in blankets of flowers while snow covered mountains loom overhead. Amazing river rafting and fishing, and mountain hiking and biking experiences, will bond your team, while Alaska’s wild frontiers will inspire them to embrace the new viewpoints and challenges facing your company.
  • Canada is also cooler at this time of year, and has 60% of the world’s lakes within its borders. Those evening lake breezes can cool your team after a day of activity on the water, as they partake of delectable local delicacies and plot innovative new steps for your organization.

So contact us today and let us whisk your team away to a cooler climate and an invigorating new perspective on your work.
