Pioneer Travel Goes Sailing

This past July, 25 alumni, parents, and friends sailed from Bellingham, Washington, to Victoria, B.C., aboard the 160-foot schooner Zodiac with Professor Emeritus Stephen Dow Beckham as their guide. Annie Mohler—parent of a Class of 2020 student—reflects, “It was clear that a lot of thought went into the planning of the trip, including a great itinerary, wonderful education, and a great vessel.” There are limited spots left for the November 2019 trip to Greece and the January 2020 trip to Tanzania. Registration is also now open for Pioneer Travel adventures in 2020 to Cuba, Israel and the West Bank, and Iceland. We hope you will travel with us!
