Beat the price increase!
By booking any Discover Corps trip before February 1, 2020 and you will lock in 2019 pricing (a savings of up to $300/person). If you’re nervous about committing early, don’t worry – if you switch trips or your travel dates later on in the year, we will still honor the 2019 price!
We offer multiple trip types in 18 different countries (now including Hawaii!), and each program is as unique as the wildlife, people, and culture it highlights. Explore all of our destinations here. Whether it’s volunteering with the daily chores of an elephant sanctuary, marveling at the incredible Mt. Fuji in Japan, or protecting baby sea turtles in Costa Rica, travel with purpose in 2020.

“I loved watching my granddaughter’s eyes light up as she released a baby turtle into its natural habitat. Every time she encountered a new species of animal that she had only previously seen in a zoo, I couldn’t help but smile. My husband and I also really enjoyed our long walks on the beach.”
