About the organization
ARCC Programs was founded in 1983 with the goal of introducing young adults to outdoor challenges in a fun, safe and educational environment. Over the years we have evolved from offering primarily wilderness-based programs to a roster of both domestic and international service and educational based programs.
ARCC summer programs and Gap Semesters take place in locations all over the world. ARCC programs are structured to strike the balance between hard work and hard play while exploring off-the-beaten-path locations. ARCC students return home with a willingness to face new challenges, a greater sense of responsibility and, most importantly, confidence in themselves.
The Regional Director is the primary person responsible for the successful planning, management, and supervision of the ARCC adventure travel programs assigned under their directorship, including financial success.
