GEEO participants are mostly made up of American K-12 teachers. Each group tends to have a good mix of educators in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. About half of our participants travel alone and do not know anyone in the group prior to the trip. By default, we group single travelers of the same gender together as roommates unless a participant prefers to pay an additional fee for their own room.
GEEO trips are open to all kindergarten to university teachers, school staff, school administrators, and soon-to-be teachers pursuing their teaching certificates. 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. The minimum age for our programs is 18 years old, except for our family programs. If you wish to travel with children under 18 years of age, please get in touch with us so we can help you find an alternative program or consider setting up a new family program.
