Let the Game Begin…

September 23, 2014

2016 Clue 1 wordsEach year we announce the next Minooka TAP trip in mid-late October, but we always like to give our friends a few clues to help them try and figure it out in advance.  We call this the TAP Game.  For the next several weeks, a series of clues will appear on our social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.  Follow the clues and you may be able to figure out where we’re going in advance.

Keep in mind, this is for our 2016 trip, which will be our 10th anniversary adventure, so we’ve saved some pretty special and amazing places for this group.  Keep following along, because as soon as the application process begins, we think this trip will fill up very quickly.

In the past we’ve traveled to Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Japan, England, Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, but this one will likely top all the other trips from the past.  Our group is open to any students who are currently in 7th grade or older (so they will just have finished 8th grade when we travel in June 2016) that live in the Joliet-Channahon-Minooka-Plainfield area (you tell us if you’re close enough).  As soon as the next trip is announced, students will be able to begin an application process to see if they are selected for the group.

Once in the group, we work for a year and a half to prepare our students financially, academically, socially, and logistically for travel to foreign countries.  Along the way we meet about once a month (except summer time), write our own travel guide book, and read and research a ton about the places we’re going.

If you’d like more information about our group, feel free to explore this website, our Facebook page, our YouTube channel, or email us at
