My daughter Presley approached me in November about wanting to go on Calbreak. We live in a small town and have had a few kids from town go on the Calbreak trip over the past few years so by word of mouth I already knew what an amazing experience this trip would be. Therefore it didn’t take much convincing on Presleys part to get the go ahead. The price was definitely affordable, and the communication between the Calbreak crew leading up to and throughout the trip was amazing.... Answers to any of my questions were replied to almost immediately. This trip can be summed up as “ A trip of a lifetime”. Presley is already talking of hoping to go again next year. As a parent I was content that she was in great hands thee entire time. Lifetime memories, experiences and friendships were made.

My daughter Melissa went on the Calbreak tour in April 2016 . The trip was a graduation gift.
Melissa wants to travel the world but doesn’t have a lot of travel experience yet. The Calbreak team provided a very safe and fun way to explore all the biggest highlights California has to offer! My parents sent me on the California breakaway tour 24 years ago and it was amazing then and is still amazing today!

Overall I felt that it was well organized and that at the parent meeting any questions that people had were answered. Communication was good; the web site was helpful and you could email at anytime for info. My daughter had a great time and she loved the staff. I felt comfortable that our daughter was being well chaperoned. The price was right and there were plenty of options. My daughter had a great time and is looking forward to next year.

If anyone would like to email me about sending their kids on this trip, I would be more then happy to ensure them how good this trip is for their kids. These young people meet friends from all over the province and see places they would not be able to otherwise see. I am working on sending my kids twice, because we couldn’t go on a vacation like this for the amount Calbreak charges. They will be going with people that know all the ins and outs and who will keep the kids safe, yet giving them some freedom. My 20 year old would love to go again, but she’s too old now and is presently attending University.

My daughter has had nothing but wonderful things to say about the staff. I cannot believe you’re able to pack that much into such a short time, but you did! Not only was Katy affected immensely by the experiences on this trip, but her family was as well. I have nothing but the highest of praises for this trip and the organization. There are very few opportunities for teenagers in today’s world that allow them to leave home without having to face the dangers of the world. I was able to send my teenager away and feel totally confident that she was safe. It could be said that I felt safer letting her go with you all to another country, than letting her go out at night with her friends at home.

She enjoyed herself a great deal. She connected with her small group leader and felt it was good to hear a Christian point of view and experiences. As a parent I felt this was good exposure for my daughter. Every learning experience is a good experience. She felt YFC spoke to the Christian theories but didn’t push them, which was good for her and myself. Allie spoke highly of all the leaders on this trip. Thanks for making it a great time for her. Absolutely, I would recommend families to send their students! It gives another point of view and fun without alcohol and drugs.

This has been an excellent experience for both our girls, something they talk about a lot. We have 1 son and 1 daughter still to go on the Calbreak trip. They are already talking about it .We have mentioned this to many other people who are very interested. I know from our school next year that there will be 5 or 6 kids going!!!

You guys were awesome! I was very happy with the organization. I liked your options. It was very hard for my daughter to choose, but I liked the way you had a variety of options so that the kids didn’t always have to be doing the same thing. Yes, I would recommend families to send their students because my daughter said she had a blast and she thinks that everyone should have a chance to go on a trip like this. It also gives them a chance just to get away and have fun with kids their age.

The organization and information was great. Kirsten greatly enjoyed the trip and I believe it was a very positive influence in her life. Yes, I would highly recommend Calbreak!

The preparation was ok once we attended the general meeting. Before this, I was kind of going out on a limb about sending my daughter with a bunch of people I did not know. The meeting was useful and answered a lot of questions. For sure, send your teenager and let them experience this wonderful world we live in. Let them see the beauty and the trouble that some experience. It was worth every penny.
