Medical Treatment Consent Form
This form authorizes emergency medical treatment for a tour participant and must be signed by a parent/guardian.
- Take It All In Stamina: Traveling is a constant learning experience. In addition, we take in a ton of history and culture on each of our trips because we want you to see as much as possible. Although it can be tempting to take a break or opt out of an activity, we encourages students to find another layer of stamina. They may not have the chance to see or experience what is before they again. They should take advantage and make the most of it!
- Spandex: Traveling often requires flexibility. Sometimes roads close or the weather is warmer than anticipated, for example. Students should come prepared with a positive attitude and ready to adapt as needed.
- Respect: After ensuring personal safety, demonstrating respect is of the utmost importance. Students must remember that they are a guest at their destination. They should demonstrate respect for themselves, their fellow travelers, their tour leader, and the local culture.
- Tennis Shoes: Walking is the best way to see a city! We travel by foot for a considerable portion of any trip. Please pack shoes that you know will be comfortable at the end of a busy day.
- Light Jacket (or Heavy, as needed): We will be both inside and outside on our tours. For your comfort, please pack layers and a light/heavy jacket as needed for either air conditioning or cold weather.
- Casual/Respectable Clothing: Casual, but respectable clothing is appropriate for our student trips. Short shorts or low-cut shirts are not acceptable. Certain circumstances, such as a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, require more formal attire. Check your itinerary.
- Extra Outfit: Pack one extra set of clothes, just in case.
- Layers: It is recommended that students pack layers of clothing. Early mornings can be cool with it warming up by afternoon.
- Sleeping Clothes/Pajamas
- Luggage Tags: Please mark your student’s on all luggage and other belongings.
- Poncho/Umbrella: Pack a small umbrella or poncho in case of inclement weather. As in show business, the tour must go on!
- Extra Contacts/Glasses: Don’t have the student who says, “I didn’t think I would lose one.” They will have traveled a long way to see nothing but a blur. Pack extra contacts/glasses, just in case.
- Camera: This is a once in a lifetime trip! Be sure they can capture all the moments, especially when you can win prizes!
- Camera and Phone Chargers – You don’t want your student to miss taking great photos of your memorable trip or being able to contact you or the tour leader. Pack your charger!
- Watch: We see so much on our tours! Being on time is very important in order to see everything on your itinerary. All tour participants should have a watch to maintain punctuality.
- Sunscreen: Protect your skin! Sunburn makes for an uncomfortable bus trip home!
- Personal Toiletries: Pakc compact size toiletries, sealed in ziplock bags.
- Headphones: For the courtesy of the other bus passengers, pack headphones.
