GEEO participants are mostly made up of American K-12 teachers. Each group tends to have a good mix of educators in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. About half of our participants travel alone and do not know anyone in the group prior to the trip. We group single travelers of the same gender together as roommates unless a participant prefers to pay an additional fee for their own room. If we have an odd amount of one gender, we will rotate the single room for free among the participants.
GEEO trips are open to all Kindergarten to University teachers, school staff, school administrators, and soon-to-be teachers pursuing their teaching certificate. Our programs are also open to retired educators. Non-American educators are welcome on our trips.
Each educator who participates in our programs is permitted to bring along up to three friends or family members who are not teachers. Each participant must be of adequate fitness level for their chosen trip. If you wish to bring a guest under the age of 18, GEEO will consider your request, but typically we only allow participants over the age of 18.
