Here at Riveted Kids we create summer camp adventures that plant the seeds for global citizenship. We curate adventures to connect teens directly to trusted locals, activities, and culture. We go off the beaten path and are immersive by design. Themes relate to sustainability, responsible travel, social justice, and self-awareness. Each day is structured for fun and learning from locals. We intentionally process our experiences to develop an appreciation for the global community.
