THE SKI & SPORTS CLUB OF WASHINGTON, DC








      



GREAT SPORTS FOR ALL SEASONS

Welcome to the Travel Program

SCWDC's Travel Program organizes and oversees group travel experiences to destinations worldwide. We work with several travel partners and tour operators to offer a variety of travel opportunities.  While our Sailing, Sports, and Tennis Programs also offer travel events, the Travel Program focuses on non-skiing events that require air travel.

Getaway Trips involve trips to exotic locales and exclusive resorts, as well as ocean and river cruises.  We follow the sun and fly you to warmer climates during our fall, winter or late spring months. We have special business relationships with Club Med, Overseas Adventure Travel, and Viking Cruises, as well as with favored tour operators.

In the last several years, we have run "Bike and Barge" trips to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. 

Winter Events:  Many of our ski, snowboard and X-country events also offer off-slope adventure activities.  A good example is our February 2022 trip to the Alyeska ski resort in Alaska.

CLUB MED:

OVERSEAS ADVENTURE TRAVEL (O.A.T.):

They are a perfect fit for SCWDC because they specialize in small groups, solo travelers, and boutique adventure vacations on land, rivers and seas.  In October 2023, we are offering a lifetime to visit ancient Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs and the Pyramids, a cruise down the Nile River, and Egypt as it is today.  See trip details.
