Yale – Excursions

Our fantastic ORA summer school at Yale University offers a number of iconic destinations to visit during the summer, including New York City, escape rooms and State Houses.
Please note that these are example excursions, which may change from year to year and vary according to age group.

New York City

Yale University is nestled in the state of Connecticut, just along the coast from New York City. An excursion to the world-famous NYC is thus a must for those staying at Yale, who get to explore the fast-paced New York sites under careful supervision from staff. From the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center and Public Library to Staten Island, Grand Central Station and Central Park, there is an extensive range of iconic sites for students to explore during their trip to the beautiful city.

Escape Rooms

The New Haven Escape Rooms provide an exciting opportunity for ORA students to improve their teamwork skills in a fun and practical environment. Only those with true detective skills and logical thinking can solve the puzzles and find the clues needed to escape, with teamwork proving to be an invaluable asset required for this activity.

Campus Tour

A full guided tour around Yale University led by a current student ensures that ORA groups can fully experience the world-famous campus. With insights into iconic University buildings, including Woolsey Hall and the University Library, the tour provides an extensive and informative perspective into life as a Yale student.

State Houses

The Hartford State Houses make for a fascinating excursion, teaching pupils about the American judicial system. Alongside a guided tour of the State Houses and Courtrooms, individuals are taught about the fundamental differences between State and Federal Law as they stand at podiums and sit on the judge’s bench.
