Raggant Romp 2023
Hello, everyone! We need your input.  

As we told the Secondary Students last week in Omnibus, we have begun taking steps towards a Raggant Romp in 2023!

We are looking at two options: a nine-day on-the-ground trip to the East Coast (Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New England) or a twelve-day on-the-ground trip to the U.K. (England, Scotland, and Northern France) similar to the trip we did in 2018. Either trip would likely take place in late August/early September of 2023.

The cost for the East Coast trip would be about $2,900 and operated by ACTS with ECS teacher chaperones. ACTS provides one trained tour guide to accompany us the entire way, makes all of our arrangements in moderate hotels with either four or two students per room, and helps provide security detail for the hotels at night.

The trip to the UK would be $3,250 depending on airfare. ECS Staff would plan and execute the trip, acting as tour guides, and we would stay in private four or six-person hostel rooms with at least one chaperone per room. Our good (UK-based) friend  Richard, who operates a professional motor coach company, would once again act as chauffeur and local help and security.

We encouraged the Secondary Students to talk with their parents and then fill out this brief survey by Friday, May 20th, though everyone may not be eligible once we decide on more details (i.e. we may only take 10th grade and older to the United Kingdom).

As we also told the students, be advised that with either option this is a year-long commitment. A non-refundable registration fee will be due by September of this year ($300 - $600 depending on the trip), followed by quarterly payments until we depart. Each student must be committed to some fundraising efforts, though we do have funds saved from the last few years that will be distributed once we have firm numbers. We will also meet once a month during the 2022 - 2023 school year to discuss details and have each student present briefly on one of the sights we will be seeing (they get to choose; this helps us all grow in knowledge about where we are going and helps them personally invest in the trip). In the past, these meetings have lasted a few hours in the evening with a potluck dinner. 

Again, please fill out the survey when you have a spare moment, and based on interest, we look forward to having an Information Meeting some time in June!
