Moondance is an adventure travel company for teens going to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring places. We believe that the most impactful adventures require getting outside of our comfort zones and away from our hometowns. In doing so, we put ourselves in new places and new situations that require us to fully engage in what’s going on around us. These are the environments and individuals that inspire us to live in the moment. This is Moondance.
Moondance is an opportunity for your child to take risks and face challenges without you there to clear the path for them. The "unplugged" feature allows them to step away from the outwardly focused world of social media, and to spend time getting to know themselves and learning empathy for others. The confidence they gain from reaching the top of a mountain or the end of a journey is life changing
