Below is our anticipated schedule of activities. The group will have limited access to the internet throughout the program. While we understand families are eager for news, we ask for patience as our staff’s energy is focused on the students and the program at hand. Please do not call our office regarding these trip logs, as the office does not control the postings or the content of the updates. We appreciate your understanding!
