Let Us Help You Organize a Group Trip
The TREE Institute has been organizing public and private educational trips for over 11 years. Over 3,000 clients have traveled with us in group sizes from 10 to130! TREE is licensed and insured in the State of Florida.
While TREE offers trips to the public, our primary travelers are groups from organizations. Check out our past traveler list here.
If you are a non-profit organization, donations to your organization can also be included in the package. For professional groups, we can add your conference fee.
TREE has also organized trips for VIP private business groups and families that required private jets or aircraft. (References available upon request) TREE will walk you through the whole process. A TREE Representative will be with your group throughout the trip making this experience as “seamless” as possible.
The 5 main reasons organizations have used TREE services:
- TREE makes it streamlined for you to organize a trip in 3 easy steps and takes care of everything. See the 3 easy steps below. TREE takes care of the details: the bookings, payments, paperwork, organizing, and execution of your group trip.
- TREE can customize your itinerary to your group’s interests. Offering customized itineraries allows your group to have the best possible experience while exploring all the “not to be missed” places. TREE trips are not “cookie cutter”!!! TREE can “specially” design your conferences, events, retreats, festivals, fundraisers, exchanges, reunions, and private groups.
- TREE offers trips to places not easily accessible or not widely visited.
Explore private Gardens in Cuba. Hike into a rainforest. Walk through a cave and hike into a UNESCO biosphere.
Because TREE works in the countries where travel is offered, TREE has access to private places, some only accessible with TREE. These “off the beaten path” locations enrich the itinerary and the client experience. TREE also can also arrange access to “behind the scenes” visitations.
- TREE designs fun and exciting adventures with surprises so everyone falls in love with the experience.
TREE trips are designed with passion and added surprises. TREE destinations are always changing and because TREE works there, we continue to add new and improved activities. TREE makes each trip unique and a “life changing” memory.
- TREE immerses the traveler into the local culture with cool learning experiences.
Learn the language of the mind, spirit, and body of the local people. Dive into the rich history of places. Walk the streets of a UNESCO heritage city with a local city architect. Take a cooking, dance, music, or mixology lesson. Meet dignitaries and professionals for a meaningful exchange. Learn how to describe a new species of butterfly or take a painting class. Sit with scientists and help map out new biodiversity hot spots. Because TREE is working in the places we offer, we have great local contacts to arrange lessons, demonstrations, lectures, expeditions and special interchanges that enrich the depth of knowledge that enhances your client’s learning experience.
How to Organize a Group Trip In 3 Easy Steps
STEP ONE: Plan Your Trip
Decide on destination, potential dates, duration, and organizational needs. Based on this, TREE will provide a customized itinerary (catering to your group’s needs) with pricing. The time frame of this planning process from beginning to end will typically take 2–4 weeks depending on destination and, as well as how much interface with local organizations or government. Determine donation OR registration fee to your group or organization, typically $200–$500 per participant with minimums met. Finally, an agreement between your organization and TREE is completed and signed.
STEP TWO: Get the Word Out About Your Trip
The organization/institution just basically gets the word out. Promote the trip to your mailing list by sending personalized invitation or email announcement to your mailing /client list. Info can also be put into a private newsletter, constant contact, and email blasts. TREE can help with verbiage and how to get the word out. (TREE must pre-approve advertisement through any public media.)
STEP THREE: Celebrate your trip and fundraising!
A check goes to the organization/institution within 14 days of the completion of the trip.
