This four-day trip typically takes place in March, leaving on a Thursday from LaGuardia Airport and returning on Sunday. There will also be a few pre-trip sessions for parents and students.

Food while en route to and from Atlanta, transportation to LaGuardia, souvenirs, and appetizers and desserts are not included—some spending money is recommended. The total cost of the trip depends on the number of participants.
Registration materials and deposit are typically due by the Friday before Thanksgiving.
