Cost: Right now we are estimating the full cost for a cast member to be $1,200 - $1,400. Our goal is to raise at least half of this cost through fundraising efforts; however, you should be prepared to covered the full cost if that is necessary. In order to reserve the cast members spot, we are requesting confirmation of your attendance by FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16th. The initial $400 deposit will then be billed to your family account (This will either be auto drafted per your agreement with RCS or you will need to pay online by September 30 to avoid late fees). Once we have a better understanding of total cost (dependent on how many cast members attend, airline fees and hotel rooms), we will communicate a final schedule of payment (likely December and February).
Chaperone: Depending on the number of cast members participating, we will need 3-6 chaperones. Please complete a separate Jot Entry form if you would like to be on the chaperone list. Once we know how many cast members will be attending, we will be communicating regarding chaperones. Once we confirm you as a chaperone, your family account will be billed similar to the cast member (e.g., your account will be billed an additional deposit of $400).
Transportation and hotel: This trip is all inclusive and transportation and hotel will be secured and provided for all cast members and chaperones. We cannot guarantee a hotel room or plane ticket for additional family members in our reservation blocks, but will do our best to accommodate if there are extras available.
