Proposing a Trip

Trip ideas are submitted by Covenant faculty in mid to late February, approximately one year prior to their proposed January travel dates. Approved trips are announced later in that semester. If you are interested in leading a trip, please contact

Applying to Travel

Leaders of approved J-term trips will share information and raise interest for their trips both electronically and in person. Because of the advanced planning required for quality travel, families are asked to commit earlier to trips than to classes or internships.
