We are actively monitoring the discussions in Congress over federal funding, and the potential impact on our tours visiting Federal Sites & National Parks across the United States.

Without an agreement between the House, Senate and White House, the government will shut down on Saturday September 30, 2023 at midnight. The impact to our Tours will be limited to those visiting some Federal Sites & National Parks across the country. Some states including Utah, Arizona and Colorado have indicated that they will provide the necessary funding to keep the National Parks operating. Other states are considering similar measures.

If we are unable to operate or your tour is altered due to the government shutdown, we will contact you directly prior to departure.

For almost ten years, the Collette Foundation has been a key supporter of the Tenderfeet Education Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.  Many lives have been touched by the special work done there, including that of Collins (age 14) and his single mother.

Collins has attended Tenderfeet for over 10 years. It has helped him tremendously. Yet, there have been many times when he was unable to attend school. His home is far from Tenderfeet, which makes for an arduous journey and at times, would prevent him from making the trip.

Recently, Collins started boarding at Tenderfeet, and he is thriving. Having the opportunity to stay at the school affords him a fantastic opportunity. It has made a world of difference. He is excelling academically and his mother and the staff couldn’t be more thrilled with his progress.
