    My son Lucas is going on the Cameroon trip and his dad has made most of the arrangements for this. I see that his debrief ends on Aug 13 but school starts for him on the 11th, and obviously he needs to be there for that. What sort of arrangements need to be made for children who need to be picked up a little early to get back for school?

    • Angela, My children were late several times and there was never an issue. They don’t count you present until you are physically present. And there is not much done in the first couple of days. We do not make arrangements for children leaving early as they are expected to complete program.

      • angela mininger

        well he’s entering 8th grade and has an 8th grade trip on the 12th that he needs to be on. there may not be a lot of actual studies that go on in the first couple of days, but the emotional adjustment that comes with entering into 8th grade and participating with the other students is really important. I guess i’m not really asking you to make arrangements for him – especially since he’s not taking a flight or anything – i’m just letting you know that he will probably have to leave early.

  2. There is a closed facebook group online for anyone on this team to get to know eachother. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1709520662631930/?fref=ts If tou friend Teresa Campagna Whiting she will add you to the group.
