Welcome to the Golden City

Join students from around the world for an incredible program of creativity, activity & service in breath-taking Prague.

In this unique 7-10 day program of intercultural collaboration, students will meet and work together with students of all nationalities to participate in dynamic volunteer challenges with local charities and NGOs.

The Golden City of Prague is a truly magical place and our CAS Trips flagship student travel destination for a reason. Set on the majestic River Vltava, Prague is home to some of the most beautiful architecture in the world.

The history of Prague is also one of a kind and provides an incredible backdrop for on-site educational travel – from learning about World War I and World War II and Nazism and Communism to engaging with important social issues and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The city has a plethora of options to inspire and motivate students to delve deeper into the true meaning of CAS.

The CAS Trips Way

Designed by teachers for students, CAS Trips is re-defining educational travel.

Engaging the International Baccalaureate’s 7 Learning Outcomes, CAS Trips introduces students to incredible new cultures whilst striving to develop conscientious young global citizens. Through our CAS Connect! students, parents and teachers can keep track of all the essential trip information in our easy-to-use online user portal.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

Students will work collaboratively to tackle fascinating CAS projects and challenges to make a real difference to society and the environment. Working with local & international charities and NGOs, students will confront the UN’s SDGs with hands-on activities and exciting team challenges.

Sustainable Travel

One of our key sustainability measures entails meticulously calculating each participant’s carbon footprint via South Pole, and offsetting all trip-generated emissions via Stand For Trees’ VSC-certified projects around the world.

Carbon offsetting is the process of compensating for carbon dioxide emissions arising as a result of travel, by participating in schemes designed to make equivalent reductions of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. 

Each Prague Spring 2020 participant will be doing their part in traveling sustainably by carbon offsetting their CO2 emissions at a cost of €20/$25 per person.

This CAS Trip integrates the following UN SDGs:

Accommodation

Prague Spring will be accommodated at a fantastic city-center hostel, with excellent facilities including a large common room area, pool table, table tennis table, cafe, panoramic terrace and Wi-Fi internet. Situated at the heart of Prague’s New Town, our hostel is steps away from the historic Karlovo Namesti, a two-minute-walk from the River Vltava & a five-minute-walk from the charming Old Town square.  Students will share 8, 6 or 4-bed single gender dorms, with staff accommodated in private rooms. Please note, that all dietary requirements can be catered for if specified in advance.

Visa information

The majority of the European countries, the United States of America and Canada do not require visas to enter Czech Republic. Please ensure that all students who require a visa have requested it before the departure. CAS Trips does not offer visa processing services. We do, however, provide official letters of invitation and accommodation confirmation letters for participants applying for a visa.

For teachers

Although adult accompaniment is not obligatory, we welcome the participation of teachers. As educators and expedition leaders, we understand the stresses of organizing and traveling with students groups and that’s why we offer teachers FREE places! Limited spaces are available so apply today!
