Begin Planning Well in Advance!

Four Months Before Trip

  • Chaperones – Begin the selection process. Tremont recommends a 1:8 adult/student ratio including teachers.

Three Months Before Trip

  • Schedule request form – Send it in and work with Tremont staff to develop your schedule.
  • Finalize student and adult numbers – Update Tremont with current numbers 90 days prior to trip. The group is responsible for a minimum payment of 90% of your 90 day number when they attend. Inform Tremont of any changes after that point. Please read and fully understand the cancellation policy.
  • Transportation – Make arrangements, including trips away from Tremont, and verify pickup times. You must have an emergency vehicle on campus for the duration of your stay (this may be your bus).
