Pack your bags and join us for an unforgettable journey to the heart of American history in the vibrant city of Philadelphia from May 6th-10th!
We’ll explore the storied cobblestone streets where the Declaration of Independence was signed and stand in awe before the iconic Liberty Bell, a symbol of freedom that resonates through time. We’ll also savor the rich flavors of Philly cheesesteaks, and dive into the eclectic mix of cultural cuisines at Reading Terminal Market, among other things!
The student cost is $450 which includes round-trip transportation via coach bus, double-occupancy accommodations with breakfast included at the Four Points by Sheraton Philadelphia City Center, and an optional excursion to Gettysburg Battlefield*. While in Philly, the trip advisors offer optional excursions each day, however, participants are free to explore on their own. There is no set itinerary on the trip and the trip fee does not cover any entrance fees to museums or attractions or any food or drinks, unless otherwise communicated.
Student sign-ups are now open on a first come, first serve basis. Payment is due at the time of sign-ups but please reach out to discuss a payment plan if that is helpful.
Sign ups for non-students/guests start Monday, March 4th and the fee is $1,000.
Due to the amount of travel and walking involved, we generally discourage young children from participating and have a minimum age requirement of ten (10) years old. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns regarding this.
Please note that no refunds will be issued for cancellations that occur after April 1st unless there are extenuating circumstances. Additionally, no refunds will be issued for conflicts/no-shows.
