For boys to be truly ready for the world, they need to experience the world.
In addition to the array of trips offered as part of the Weekend Activities program, McCallie offers a wide variety of trips both around the country and around the world throughout the year and during school breaks. These range from intense outdoor excursions to service learning and mission trips to traditional study abroad immersion opportunities.
The trips range in from days to weeks, and are chaperoned by McCallie faculty with an interest in and expertise in the topic area of the trip. All are designed to provide boys with experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
