Costs

$310 per person

This cost is based on a team of 8 students and covers housing, meals, and transportation.

Meals will be prepared by your team. We will send money with you to purchase food for the week once you arrive in Chicago.

You can ask your church or youth group to help support your costs but, unfortunately, they will NOT be able to receive a tax-deductible receipt. Funds received over and above the support needed by a team member are non-refundable and will be considered overage. Overage will be put directly into the team fund as a whole.

Dates

You will leave campus Saturday, February 27 at 8:00 a.m. and return Saturday evening, March 6.
