If this is your first visit to the TEENS WESTWARD BOUND web site….. We are glad you are here!! This site is primarily for applicants that have been recommended for the 2016 Teens Westward Bound Program and those that have been fortunate enough to be preaccepted for this summer’s experience. Letter of invitation for this summer's Teens Westward Bound Program will be sent out after January 4th, 2016. If you are considering applying for the TWB Program the Selection Committee high recommends that you attend one of the "Fun Presentations" with a parent and wait until after the presentation before turning in your application and letters of recommendations. Family members and those that are wishing to apply to go on the incredible TWB program next summer (2016) will find some “fun facts” too as you surf our site. Of course past participants will always find our new updates in the "Past Participant Section".

The dates for the 2016 Teens Westward Bound program will be from June 18th until July 10th for the first TWB experience. The second TWB Trek will be from June 20th until July 12th.

CHECK OUT THE BLOG!! In 2007 Teens Westward Bound director Grant Deaton developed and an online TWB day by day “Travel Blog”. During the twenty-day experience of traveling our great country last summer our friends and family were able to visit the Teens Westward Bound web site each day and see pictures and journal entries that were written by the participants. To say that it was viewed constantly is an understatement. During our twenty-three day jaunt across America we receive over 274,000 unique page views!! Even though we didn’t talk to them every day our friends and family watched us every day. At the top of this page click on the TRAVEL BLOG of one of the treks and you will be able to go to each day and relive a day in the life of a TWB’er.

Please feel free to browse this official TWB Homepage. We have some new things that we think will be helpful, such as the FAQ section for parents and friends of the 2015 participants. We will be posting the 2016 TWB Presentation Schedule in early January. Come back often because our webmaster (Grant) are constantly adding and changing things. Enjoy the site and feel free to email us at if you have questions.

Hugs and High Fives,

Grant Deaton
