Program Overview

Experience London through the lens and have a fully immersive, hands-on learning experience with influencer and toy photographer, Jared Middleton, known to his followers as SirDork730, who has done photography work for Keak Toys “Bikku” line, Mountain Dew, and Disney “My Star Wars Story,” Triple Force Friday celebration, and Star Wars: Mandalorian Mondays.

Jared creates explosive shots and new worlds using action figures and practical effects that are eye catching and will have you looking twice to see if it is a movie poster or a photograph!

You may be wondering about the cost of your program.

It depends if you are attending with someone and sharing a room, or as a solo.

The pricing for sharing is shown ($1395) while the price for a single participant is shown by adding the single supplement ($395) to the shared rate- ($1790).

Why? Because our learning immersions take place on-campus, using local hotels to support local economies. Sharing a room splits the costs, while as a solo, you have the room to yourself.

Looking for a roommate? Register as a single and note in the referral code section at the time of booking- share request- to be added to a list of potential folks looking to share. If we are unable to find a match, the single supplement will apply.

Why Learning Journeys?

At Learning Journeys we believe in a new kind of vacation. Our unique journeys help you explore and develop your skills and interest, travel the world, give back to the community and ultimately re-connect with yourself.


The destinations are chosen specifically to make practicing that skill more accessible, and more fun. Typical skills offered are health and wellness, cooking, photography, art, birding and wildlife, language study, architecture, music, dance and more. Programs range from beginner to professional certification. You will even have the opportunity to attend off the beaten path festivals in your specific area of interest which will take your learning immersion to new heights!

Brand Pillars

Transformation

The quest for knowledge as we open our hearts and minds to new experiences can transform us. As we see the world through the eyes of others, the communities we visit and touch are also transformed. This cycle of positive change is at the heart of every Learning Journeys experience.

Education

Learning Journeys is designed to nurture that ember of curiosity inside you into a flame of life-long discovery. Continued learning ensures continued growth, whether pursuing any number of interests that intrigue you or a passion you have honed over the years.

Exploration

Truly, the world is your classroom. Exploring the rich and varied cultures of the destinations you visit multiplies the value of your educational pursuits, and the exploration of yourself. The journey itself – to a new place and new you – is what truly matters.

Self-reflection

Through reflection, we bring learning to life. Pausing from the chaos of our daily lives allows us to sort through experiences to create meaning, from which we learn more deeply about ourselves. Understanding what truly moves us leads to rich and profound actions that shape our lives.

Community service and sustainability is at the core of the Learning Journeys mission. In addition to hands-on interactive classes, we work in the local communities, helping to improve lives and our planet. Destinations are chosen for their exceptional beauty, abundant wildlife, accessibility to expert practitioners, and generally fun places to visit! The destinations are near and far-North America, Latin and South America, Europe, India, Asia, Australia and more.

Finally, just as you remember specific meals from a trip taken many years ago, your ability to recall information is enhanced when combined with a unique setting. “Learning Journeys” are an excellent value for money and an investment.
