This is a tentative schedule and there may be some minor modifications prior to the trip. The major expense for this trip is the transportation (we are renting 15-passenger vans). There are also fees for the museum, farm tour, the Amish dinner, and sack lunches on the way there. The total cost is $150 (scholarships are available - text Jessica for more info at 208-290-2406). The $50 deposit is due at the time of registration and the rest is due on the day of departure.

Registration is now closed.
