Precious Journeys®
As you may already know, Big Five is also passionate about families. Our Precious Journeys® family-focused adventures introduce younger children to new places, people and experiences such as a hands-on peanut butter workshop in Guatemala presented by peanut farmers in their homes, and going out with local fishermen to learn about sustainable fishing techniques.

Precious Journeys® College Edition focuses on the next steps for our future leaders as they begin to discover their own identities. These adventures allow young adults to explore with their families, and, at the same time, begin to use the knowledge and skills they have gained. They offer young adults opportunities to investigate more complex interests such as graffiti in Buenos Aires, Colombia and elsewhere; a trek in Australia’s amazing wilderness; and a climb up Sri Lanka’s 12th-century Sigiriya Rock Fortress.
