How are the two possible trips different?

One day shorter

Bosque tropical instead of beach

zip-lining

consequences
Consequences
  • Any drug / alcohol use results in immediate flight home at parents’ expense. School consequences will follow as stated in the student handbook.
  • Smoking violations will result in consequences that trip leaders feel are appropriate. (Students who cannot go for 10 days without tobacco are asked not to travel.)
  • Breaking curfew / arriving late for events is a serious offense. It not only inconveniences the entire group but also leaves a bad impression on host families, guides, and bus drivers. It worries us, too.
