Thank you for your interest in our summer 2017 trip to The People’s Republic of China. This trip is truly an experience of a lifetime. It is our intent to provide you with as much information a possible to help make this entire process as easy and informative as possible. Students who choose to take on this endeavor should understand that this project is two fold.


First is the process of setting a goal to raise the money and to be creative and motivated to stay on task for the next nine months. The rewards of all your hard work will be a great trip into the country of China where you will have an opportunity to see some exciting places and meet some new friends.


Next, it is important to keep in mind that international travel is a practice in patience. Therefore, it is essential that we select individuals who can represent their community and country to the highest degree. Everyone who participates must have a responsible attitude, the ability to follow directions, the flexibility to live with their friends in a foreign culture, and the willingness to experience a new and different culture.


The cost for athletes, students and parents for the 11 day trip to Guangzhou, Xi’an and Beijing is $3995.00 These prices includes:

· Round trip airfare

· Three meals a day

Although the actual expense is left up to each individual student, athlete, coordinated fundraising amongst the selected group will be organized. Individual solicitation, carwashes, and garage sales will help to lower the expenses.
