What is the cost?

The registration fee for youth and adult participants is very affordable. The Archdiocese asks the group for $150 per participant (including chaperones), but often coordinators charge a more to cover the travel and related costs.   Please contact your trip coordinator for your youth groups actual cost.  The fee covers the costs of food, materials, housing, and programming.  A non-refundable deposit of $50 per participant is due to the Archdiocese office after you register. Your deposit will be deducted from your total registration fee. (Please note: The Archdiocese doesn't want inability to pay to keep teens from this experience: to negotiate help with deposit or fee contact Bill Scholl, Social Justice Consultant)

Will we receive an information packet before we arrive?

YES! Your information packet will be mailed Mid- March.  The packet will include medical release forms and other paperwork for participants to fill out. All completed forms should be brought with you the week you participate. Also in this packet will be your final payment due date.

How many spots are available for each group?

There are a total of 45 spots for students each week. A parish group is limited to 15 spots per week to accommodate multiple groups. We cannot allow individual registrations. Signups must be with a parish group.

PLEASE ONLY REGISTER FOR AS MANY SPOTS YOU ARE CONFIDENT YOU WILL FILL. There are a limited number of spots and we would like to allow as many
teens to experience this as possible. (last year some teens missed this experience because people reserved spots they did not use)

How many chaperones do we need?

The Archdiocese policy requires one chaperone over the age of 21 for every seven teens who attend. Our summer staff does not count as chaperones. All chaperones must have completed "Protecting God's Children". If you bring both boys and girls, you must bring both male and female chaperones.

Should we contact the hosting parish for more information?

No. Although we currently have some great people working in our location, all questions regarding this summer's mission experiences should be directed to those on our Team Page.
