Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Trip 2015 - UPDATED 3/9
WILLIAMSBURG / BUSCH GARDENS
May 8 - 10, 2015
 
 
Participating Students:  73
Chaperones:  7
Director:  1 
 
 
Costs     
$385.00  -  performing students**
$360.00  -  non-performing students
$240.00  -  chaperones
 
**Performing students include ALL 8th grade band members and selected 7th grade band members.  The selection of seventh grade band members to perform will not be made until the performing program has been finalized in February.  At that time, those selected students become "performing students."
 
The price quoted in the spring was based on 90 paying persons (including chaperones).  We only have 85 paying persons, so that accounts for the slight increase in cost for students and chaperones.  Also, the Busch Gardens admission price was inadvertently omitted from the seventh grade and chaperone trip cost estimates in the spring causing the larger price increase for these two groups.
 
Costs include 5 meals (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 1 dinner), 2 nights hotel lodging (Fairfield Inn), music festival participation, Busch Gardens admission, tour of Historic Williamsburg and admission to Governor's Palace, trip t-shirt, all taxes and gratuities (except tour director), consumer protection plan, and liability insurance plan
