Looking ahead: Europe trip added for summer 2022

Looking ahead to 2022, Bethlehem Central High School is planning a student trip to Europe in the summer of 2022 with EF Tours. The trip will be open to all current high school students and those holding vouchers from the EF Tours trips (Peru and Japan) that were canceled due to COVID-19. The trip to Europe will also be available to current grade 8 students who will be attending BCHS in 2021-22. Families of students are also invited to join this special trip.

The tentative plan is for a 10-day summer trip to Paris and Barcelona, but a trip like this requires advance planning. There is an important virtual informational meeting on March 18 for students and parents to learn more about this opportunity.

Imagine boating down the Seine River in Paris and experiencing first-hand the sights and sounds of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, walking down the historic streets of Pamplona, Spain where bulls once ran and taking in the amazing culture of Barcelona as you gaze out upon the Mediterranean Sea.

Due to the recent cancellation of the Japan and Peru trips, the district has approved a cultural experience to Paris and Spain in the summer of 2022. All eligible high school students and their families are welcome to attend. Current eighth-grade students who will be entering ninth grade next year and their families will also have access to this ten-day experience. If you are currently holding a voucher from a previous trip you will have the option to apply it towards this experience.
