Summer trip fair set at Princeton High on Wednesday

   From a wilderness expedition in British Columbia to working in an orphanage in China to studying art and architecture in the south of France or creative writing in Argentina, teens in search of an original and enriching summer experience can find it at the Summer Trip and Program fair scheduled at Princeton High School on Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m.
   The fair, hosted by the Princeton High School PTO, is sponsored by Tips on Trips and Camps, a free overnight camp consulting service for ages 8–18. Admission is free.
   Students from all area high schools and their parents are invited to meet representatives from more than 35 summer programs for teens. "When teens outgrow traditional overnight camps or want to go away for the first time, there are many enriching and challenging opportunities to choose from," said Helaine Isaacs, a consultant with Tips on Trips.
   Students can perform community service, participate in a language immersion program or choose an outdoor adventure trip — or they can pick a trip that combines all of these activities. Another option is taking college credit or enrichment classes on a college campus in addition to SAT preparation and visiting college campuses.
   "There are diverse possibilities that appeal to all kinds of teenagers. Some prefer a more cerebral experience, others are excited by physical challenge; some want to sleep in a hotel or dormitory throughout their travels and others backpack throughout remote regions," explained Ms. Isaacs.
   "The programs are all valuable and are carefully screened prior to the fair. For parents, the key is finding a program that is a good fit with their teenager’s interests and the experience they want for their child."
