The wearing of masks inside any tour accommodation will not be required and is optional. Learning Brave LLC will work to ensure the comfort and health of tour participants but will not be held responsible for any Covid 19 cases that arise during the tour.

The tour mentors for this trip will be Ross and Skyler Gilbert, both have extensive experience working with youth.
Ross Gilbert was awarded top youth mentor for Williamsburg Learning in 2019 and has never regretted leaving corporate life 4 years ago to fulfill his dream of living intentionally and working in a meaningful capacity with youth.
Skyler Gilbert is the founder of Learning Brave LLC, the mother of 5 children, a writer, artist, and adventure planner. Skyler has a bachelor in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies.
Both Ross and Skyler have lived and traveled in the Middle East. They have a passionate love for this region of the world and are so excited to share this love with others!
Our rough itinerary for the Jordan Youth Tour is as follows;
1. Arrive and settle in.
2. Amman. We will explore this fascinating city, try the food, do some shopping, tour the city, check out the Roman theatre and more..!
3. Jerash and Ajloun. Jerash is an ancient city that has been inhabited since the Bronze Age! It is famous as being one of the best preserved Greco-Roman cities in the Middle East, Jerash is one of the top attractions in Jordan. Truly, this place is amazing!!
Ajloun - The Ajloun Castle was originally built in 1184 to defend against the Crusaders, it is an amazing piece of ancient history to explore.
4. Humanitarian work with Syrian refugees. We are yet to have this organised, and we don't yet know what this portion of the trip will look like, but it is our great desire to have our tour participants engage in a meaningful way with the refugees.
5. Travel to Wadi Musa and visit Kerak - one of the largest Crusader castles in the region.
6. Petra. I have visited 34 countries around the world and of all the marvels I have seen, Petra remains my absolute favourite. It is incredible in every way possible and a visit to Petra is guaranteed to be a truly special life experience.
7. Wadi Rum. We are going to one of the most spectacular deserts on earth to camp with the Bedouin under the stars!
8. Visit the lowest place on Earth and float in the Dead Sea!
9. Visit the town of Madaba, the baptismal site of Jesus, and Mt. Nebo.
10. Fly home.
