NEW DATES FOR OUR 2021 PROGRAMS!
INCLUDING A PROGRAM FOR 9th GRADERS WHO MISSED OUT IN 2020!

While the challenges of Covid19 still present some unknowns, we are optimistic as vaccinations continue to increase we will be able to provide for a safe and exciting experience for our students and teachers in 2021. Based on the information we currently have, a Spring trip was not  feasible, so we’ve moved our program to leave right after the close of the 2021 school year.

We will follow CDC recommendations to support the health and safety of everyone participating. Additionally, we will be changing our typical rooming arrangements from four-to-a-room to two-to-a-room in order to provide more personal space for each student.

As promised, we have also put together a special section for all the students who had planned to go this past Spring. These 9th graders from each of our area high schools will travel as a group along with a small group of 8th graders. 

Since in-person parent meetings are currently not an option, we presented a webinar on March 11 which can be viewed by clicking the link above.

Note: Summer School dates may conflict with Trip Dates.  Please check before registering.

About Us

TravelEd was founded in 1978 by Tom Johnsen and Donald Zimring, two former middle school teachers, who wanted students to not just learn about our nation’s history but to experience it first hand.  Each brought a unique set of skills to their vision.  Johnsen holds his Juris Doctorate degree from UCLA and wanted to instill in students the fundamental understanding of how our legal system works and how truly revolutionary the  concept of “rule by law” versus “rule by king” was in creating our country.  Zimring holds a Ph.D. from UCSB and had previously worked for the World Affairs Council of Los Angeles with travel to over 24 countries.  His experiences showed him the power that “teaching through travel” could have on a student.  Together they began planning their student trips as they would a lesson plan – but using our nation’s capitol and historic locations as the classroom.

TravelEd is the premier educational  travel program for students in grades eight and above from Conejo,  Las Virgenes, Oak Park, Ventura and other California schools. Over 18,000 area students have had history and government come alive over the past four decades on a TravelEd Tour.
